The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has named Amina Arong as its national women leader.

Debo Ologunagba, PDP spokesperson, announced Arong’s appointment in a statement issued on Thursday.

Arong will serve out the term of Stella Effah-Attoe who died in October 2023 after a brief illness.

The party described Arong, from Cross River, as a “prominent women mobiliser”.

“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 statement reads.

“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.”

Arong holds a diploma in banking and finance and a B.Sc. in accounting.

The PDP asked the national women leader to “deploy her capacity and experience in working with other members” of the national working committee (NWC) “for the continuing stability, growth and success” of the PDP.
