Oboh, the veteran Nollywood producer, criminologist, PR consultant and philanthropist, said: “There is no better time to have Arapaja as Deputy National Chairman than now that the party is forging a bond and unity with the welfare of Nigerians at its centre.
“Arapaja is an administrator that has left his marks in governance and as the leader of the party in the South-West.
“Most importantly, Arapaja is the gentleman, true leader, and advocate for peaceful means of resolving issues that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, needs to lead the southern region.
“It was not surprising when the party’s South-West Zonal Executive Committee adopted Arapaja as a consensus candidate.”
Mabel Oboh also congratulated other winners, adding that “PDP, as one big family, has no loser.”
“We are one big family and our common goal is to rescue Nigerians, come 2023 general elections,” she added.
