According to the party, Arapaja has mentored so many young politicians into the mainstream both at the state and national politics as well as provided the needed political leadership for his mentees.

His achievements in politics and government could not have been accomplished without his vast knowledge and understanding of the political landscape and terrain at the state, regional and national levels having been an active PDP member since 1999.

The party noted that Arapaja has consistently given Oyo State an enviable leadership representation in all political capacities and assignments he has been entrusted with over the years.
