Nollywood actress, Mabel Oboh, has joined the league of Nigerian entertainers who have delved into politics.
The outspoken actress has been elected as the spokesperson of Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos Chapter of the African Democratic Congress (ADC).
According to the screen diva, her position entails heading the political party's media and publicity department.
“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 former President Olusegun Obasanjo as the party chairman. We are in safe hands. I must also commend the great work that Hon. Ekanem idara is doing.
"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.
The actress is the founder of Mabel Oboh Centre for Save Our Star, MOCSO. The NGO was established last year with the aim of improving the health of Nigerian entertainers.
