PDP appoints Amina Divine Arong as National Woman Leader

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has named Hon. Amina Divine Arong from Cross River State as the new National Woman Leader, filling the position left vacant by the late Stella Effah-Attoe.

PDP spokesman Debo Ologunagba announced the appointment in a statement on Thursday.

“The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has appointed a prominent Party women mobilizer, Hon. Amina Divine Arong from Cross River State, as the Party’s new National Woman Leader.”

Arong, holding a diploma in Banking and Finance and a BSc in Accounting, will complete the term of the late woman leader, according to Ologunagba.

He highlighted her intellectual capacity, experience, competence, and vigor in mobilizing women for the party at both state and national levels, stating, “The new National Woman Leader brings on board to the national leadership of the PDP her intellectual capacity as well as experience, competence, and vigour in mobilizing women for the Party at both the state and national levels.”

“The PDP notes with satisfaction Hon. Arong’s long-standing commitment to the growth of the Party particularly her leading roles in the mobilization of several Party Women and Youth groups at various levels as well as in the conduct of Party Primaries and Congresses in several parts of the country.”

The main opposition party thus challenged her to “deploy her capacity and experience in working with other members of the National Working Committee for the continuing stability, growth, and success of our great Party”.

Recall that Effah-Attoe died in late October after a brief illness, according to her family.

The PDP described her death as a huge loss to not just the party but the whole country.
