Honorable Shina Peller, a Member of the House of Representatives has made a cryptic Facebook post indicating he might be leaving the All Progressives Congress (APC), soon or later.
This is coming after Peller lost the Oyo North senatorial primary election to Abdulfatai Buhari, the current senator representing Oyo North, who got a total of 570 votes to Peller’s 5 votes.
However, Peller rejected the outcome of the election, maintaining that the APC did not conduct any election in Oyo North.
The politician also issued a statement claiming that some assassination attempts were made on his life.
He said: “A few minutes after we had left, I got intel that six vehicles (Four cars, and two buses) loaded with thugs and ammunition were on my trail to take my life. They gave the description of the vehicles, and I passed the information to my security details.
“When we got to the spot, we actually noticed that the vehicles in question matched the same description we had been given earlier and had campaign stickers and face caps of Senator Teslim Folarin. My security details then decided to disarm and arrest them.”
Speaking further on the result of the election via Facebook Peller wrote: “Disregard APC Oyo North Senatorial District purported primary election result. It seems APC doesn’t need the people of Oke-Ogun.
“The result of the purported APC Oyo North Senatorial Primaries is quite ridiculous and laughable. Even if you want to cheat, do it smartly. General election is in 8months’s time. So fingers crossed.”
