Our correspondent reports that Peller represented Iseyin/ Itesiwaju/ Iwajowa/Kajola federal constituency between 2019 and 2023.

The reception of Peller from Accord to PDP was witnessed by the state governor, Engineer Seyi Makinde, represented by his Deputy, Abdulraheem Bayo Lawal.


Makinde, while speaking, expressed confidence that the PDP remained strong and united in Oyo State and would win the forthcoming local government elections as a result of his government’s people-oriented programmes.

He charged PDP members, especially in Oke-Ogun and Ogbomoso to support and welcome the defectors with a large heart, so that the party could continue to wax stronger, as according to him, there is enough room for everyone to operate.

“I want to greet our party leaders and elders who are here at this event. Being progressive without power is zero but we want power in Iseyinland, Oke-Ogun, Ogbomoso and Oyo State in general.

“This is why Shina Peller is joining the party that gives power to the people.

“When you are looking for something within a particular place and you didn’t get it, won’t you leave the place and go to another place where you can find it?

“I want to assure Peller that he and other followers won’t regret joining the PDP and a lot of benefits will come to them, undoubtedly,” he said.
