Hollywood’s Mabel Oboh becomes ADC’s spokesperson
Seasoned actress and broadcaster, Mabel Oboh has opened a new page in her career, as she delves into politics.
The screen diva was recently elected the spokesperson for Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos chapter of African Democratic Congress (ADC). Her appointment will also see her head the media and publicity department of the party, with Mr. Isaac James as her assistant.
By this development, Oboh has joined the league of entertainers, who have delved into politics with the aim to right the wrong. She’s the founder of Mabel Oboh Centre for Save Our Star, MOCSO, which she established last year, with the sole aim of catering for the health needs of Nigerian entertainers.
On the appointment, Mabel said she was humbled and short of words, adding that it took a lot of convincing from one of the party’s chieftain, Mr. Kingsley Awatt (Zonal Chairman) for her to yield to the clarion call.
“I believe they chose me for my position believing I can deliver; I have always been the people’s woman. I care for the poor and the needy as they need a voice. I strongly believe that with the support of the former President Olusegun Obasanjo, we are in safe hands. I must also commend the great work that Hon. Ekanem Idara is doing.”
She continued: “I must confess that the strength and passion I saw in her convinced me that this is a party that is not money driven. Kingsley Awatt is another man that is full of passion. My subordinate and I are ready to move the party forward. The manifesto of the party is similar to what my NGO stands for. This is a new dawn for me,” Oboh said.
Speaking further, the thespian said as a party that clamours for the creation of a welfare state, she’s pleased to identify herself with the party.
Meanwhile, it’s unclear if Oboh will be vying for any elective position under the platform of the party in future.
