A member of the House of Representatives and the 2023 Accord senatorial candidate for Oyo North Senatorial District, Honourable Shina Peller, has described Accord as a blessing in disguise to him and other members of the party.
Honourable Peller made this known on Tuesday via a video he shared on his personal social media handles, where he described the All Progressives Congress (APC), particularly in Oyo state, as a party which has nonchalant attitude towards the masses.
The Oke Ogun-born federal lawmaker explained that if he wanted the APC senatorial ticket by all means, he would have approached the court to challenge the purported Oyo North APC senatorial primaries which he described as kangaroo.
He stated further that he refused to approach the court because he wants to serve as a leading example to young ones who may experience same but cannot afford to go to court.
He stressed further that the APC primaries remains illegal as it was carried out in an unconstitutional manner. He said:
“According to the new electoral law, a two week notice must be given to the INEC and other stakeholders for a change of election venue.
“In contrary, APC moved its kangaroo Oyo North Senatorial primaries from the original venue (Iseyin which is the headquarters of the district) to Saki in less than 24 hours in order to carry out nefarious activity. This is illegal.”
Honourable Peller added that he refused to approach the court because he wants to serve as a leading example to the young ones who may be in his shoes but cannot afford to go to court.
Furthermore, he expressed confidence that Accord is a party through which a new, functional system will be achieved. “People are tired of the present system; they want a breath of fresh air and I strongly believe that Accord is the party that will lead us to a new, functional system starting from Oyo State,” he concluded.
