Months after campaigning for APC, Portable joins Accord Party’s campaign

Nigerian musician, Habeeb Okikiola popularly known as Portable has joined the campaign train of the Accord Party in Oyo state.

This comes six months after he campaigned for the ruling All Progressives Congress governorship candidate in Osun, Gboyega Oyetola, who is also the incumbent.

In July last year, the Zazuu star stirred controversy when he declared support for Oyetola and the APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.

He and ace singer, Davido clashed over their separate choices and it resulted in a beef that lasted for months.

Fast-forward to 20223 and Portable has been spotted campaigning for Accord Party in Oyo state ahead of the general elections.

He hopped on the camapign train of Shina Peller, a House of Representatives member seeking reelection for Iseyin/Itesiwaju/Kajola/Iwajowa federal constituency, Oyo.

Still on political matters, a Director in the Tinubu/Shettima 2023 presidential campaign organisation, Naja’atu Bala Muhammad, resigned last month.

She announced her resignation in a statement on Saturday, January 21, just one month to the presidential election.

Muhammad was the Director of Civil Society in the Presidential Campaign Council of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

In her resignation letter to the National Chairman of the APC, Abdullahi Adamu, the former commissioner decried the state of the nation.

The 67-year-old activist said she decided to quit after realising that her values and beliefs no longer aligned with party politics.

Naja’atu said she observed that political platforms have no ideological differences and are “robes that politicians wear to serve their personal needs and interests”.

The politician fondly called Hajiya Naja, expressed regret that citizens still face insecurity, poverty, inequality, and lack of access to basic services.

She further advised Nigerians ahead of the general elections to be “aware of the consequences of their decisions and their choices.

“The challenges that Nigeria faces today require me to continue championing the struggle for a better country with a clear conscience as I remain absolutely loyal to Nigeria.

“I am committed to supporting individuals that are truly interested in addressing the root causes of our challenges. To remain true to such commitments, one must be willing to take bold and decisive steps,” she said.
