Shina Peller, a member of the House of Representatives from Iseyin/Itesiwaju/Kajola/Iwajowa Federal Constituency, Oyo State, has left the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The federal lawmaker announced his defection in a tweet on Friday, saying, “the party style of democracy in Oyo State kills my conscience”.
Peller said his continued stay in APC would be at the detriment of interest of his supporters, particularly the youths.
He said he would be revealing his new party on Tuesday after due consultations.
“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.
Peller, who was elected on the platform of APC in 2019, vied for the ruling party’s ticket for Oyo North Senatorial District, but lost.
