Shina Peller Convenes Grassroot Meeting, Charges APC Leaders To Use Bottom-up Line Approach



Hon. Shina Peller, a member of the House of Representatives for Iseyin/Itesiwaju/Kajola/Iwajowa Federal Constituency, Oyo State, on Wednesday convened a stakeholder meeting with leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) across the four local governments of the constituency, where he urged them to be unified for the greater good of the party.

Honouring his invitation were all the local governments’ party chairmen in the constituency, the 42 ward chairmen, youth and women leaders across the constituency including Oyo North senatorial party chairman, Alhaji Rasaq Arikewu, party leader, Alhaji Abu Gbadamosi and all other notable party leaders.

Hon. Peller, who charged the party leaders to employ a bottom-up line approach in refixing the party, also said there is an urgent need to localise politics and make vital political decisions at the grassroots level.

In like manner, he spoke about the insecurity plaguing the country, and the need for everyone to contribute his or her quota towards addressing the menace.


“Truly, there is a need for a more proactive measure in tackling the insecurity in the country, and in doing this, everyone has a role to play,” he said.


Hon. Peller, who later took to his social media pages to inform the public about the meeting, wrote:


“On Wednesday, I had a fruitful stakeholders party meeting of the All Progressives Congress (APC) at my residence in Iseyin, where all the local governments’ party chairmen in my constituency, the 42 ward chairmen, youth and women leaders across the constituency including Oyo North senatorial party chairman, Alhaji Rasaq Arikewu, party leader, Alhaji Abu Gbadamosi and all other notable party leaders were in attendance.

“I seized the avenue to emphasize the need for us to embrace unity in the overall interest of our party. To achieve this, we must guard against individual interest, which has remained one of our major problems. Also, I charged them to employ a bottom-up line approach in rebuilding our party which means we have to localise politics and make vital political decisions right from the grassroots level.

“In the same vein, I spoke about the insecurity challenges that our country is battling with, and how we, as a government, citizens, institutions and corporate individuals can contribute our quota towards addressing the menace. Truly, there is a need for a more proactive measure in tackling the insecurity in the country, and in doing this, everyone has a role to play. Though the government has the primary obligation of securing the lives and properties of its citizens, security should be everyone’s business.

“Also, the meeting served as an avenue for me to report on my stewardship so far as House of Representatives member elected on the platform of the APC. I have been holding this periodic feedback meeting with members of our party since I assumed office and I can say boldly that it is unprecedented in the history of our constituency. This is encouraging accountability.”
