He recently revealed this via a statement, and the reaction from Nigerians has been mad.
According to him, despite the fact that Arapaja has enjoyed all the privileges that PDP can offer, he still left the opposition party and stayed away for many years.
He added that If Fayose did not destroy PDP during the six years that Arapaja was jumping from one party to the other, he won’t do it now.
His words, “To us in the PDP, it is funny that a man like Arapaja, who enjoyed all the privileges that PDP can offer, but still left the party and stayed away for six years before coming back less than four months ago is the one sermonising about loyalty and commitment to the PDP.”
“If all of us, including Fayose had left “the party when he (Arapaja) and Governor Makinde left, will there be anything left in the PDP by now that he will want to come and superintend over?”
“If Fayose did not destroy PDP during the six years that Arapaja was jumping from one party to the other, is it Political Wanderer Arapaja that will now know who wants to destroy PDP?”

Currently, PDP controls 14 states out of 36 states in Nigeria.
