Member of the Federal House Of Representative, representing Iseyin/Itesiwaju/ Kajola/ Iwajowa /Federal Constituency ,as today announced his defection from the ruling All Progressive Congress APC,to Accord Party.
This follow his failure to clinch the senatorial ticket of the ruling party in May,where he loss the ticket to Senator Fatai Buhari with wide gap merging of vote.
He further explained that,he settled for Accord Party, after engaging other political parties, but later opted for Accord for a very peculiar reason.
“Accord party happens to be the first party in Oyo state to zone Oyo North Senatorial ticket to Oke Ogun considering that Ogbomosho Zone had done two terms.
The party has shown an unwavering commitment to the yearnings of the people of Oke-Ogun. It has given us hope and a sense of belonging.
In Oyo State, the Accord party is a force to reckon with, it’s internal democracy mechanism is intact, a component lacking in other parties.
Accord party is also strategic as it concerns balloting. On the ballot paper, Accord comes first before the two major parties. With Accord as our party, voting sensitization becomes easier for us to do.
Today, I would like to inform the general public that I am now with Accord party. The logo of the Accord constantly reminds me and other well meaning Nigerians of their civic responsibility – to vote for credible leaders.
In Oke-Ogun, Oyo North Senatorial District and Oyo State at large, Accord Party is our strength, it’s logo is our thumb – it’s our power and we shall make it count.” He said.
