A member of the House of Representatives from Iseyin/Itesiwaju/Kajola/Iwajowa Federal Constituency, Oyo State, Shina Peller, has dumped the ruling All Progressives Congress.
Peller announced his defection on his Twitter page on Friday.
He said he would be announcing his new party on Tuesday after due consultations.
Justifying his defection, the lawmaker claimed that “the party style of democracy in Oyo State kills my conscience.”
He added that his continued stay in APC would be at the detriment of interest of his supporters, particularly the youths.
“I’ve tried my best for APC, the party style of democracy in Oyo State kills my conscience and I’ve to put my people’s interest first. I’ve realized that the youths and the people will continue to be at the mercy of few at the top. I’ll announce my new political party on 21|06|22,” he tweeted.
Recall that there had been several rumours that Peller would be defecting from the APC after he lost the Oyo North Senatorial ticket of the part to Senator Fatai Buhari.
