Former Member of the House of Representatives, Shina Peller, is expected to join the Oyo State PDP. The PDP South-Western State spokesperson, Michael Ogunsina, confirmed the move as reported by Daily Trust on Thursday, December 14.
Ogunsina stated that plans were afoot to organize a comprehensive welcome event for Peller and his followers in each of the 13 Local Government Areas (LGAs) that make up the Oyo North Senatorial District.
Ogunsina said: “We are pleased to welcome Hon. Shina Peller in the People's Democratic Party. His wealth of experience and commitment to public service will undoubtedly contribute to the growth of the party and our collective goal of ensuring a prosperous Oyo State.”
Peller was elected to the Green Chamber in 2019 to represent the Kajola/Iwajowa/Iseyin/Itesiwaju Federal Constituency. However, in 2022, as the 2023 general elections approached, he broke away from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to run for the Senate on the platform of the Accord Party, after losing the party's primaries to Abdulfatai Buhari.
