Edo State governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr. Asue Ighodalo shone brightly on Monday night at his first engagement with Edo Diaspora Community in Europe.

The meeting, which held at the Reggio, Emilia Via Cherubino Forzani, Reggio Emilia, Italy, and monitored via a zoom link, recorded an impressive attendance.

Ighodalo, who was accompanied by his wife, Ifeyinwa, spoke extensively on his plan for Edo State to intermittent rapturous applause from the attendees.

The meeting which coincided with the release of his widely acknowledged Manifesto, “The Pathway to Prosperity for All,” saw him made cupious references to the document which enjoyed massive rave review on social media upon release.

Ighodalo appealed to his audience to support his dream to make Edo State a first world sub-national in Nigeria. He insisted that it was doable.

“Our idea of a pathway to prosperity for all is done with a view to plan and implement the next phase of our journey towards becoming a first world sub-national.

“We have to harness our God-given resources and the immense potentials of our people; and translate them into shared and inclusive prosperity for all.

“I believe it can be done. That’s why I am running for the office of Governor,” he declared to a loud applause.

The presentation was followed by a lengthy question and answer session. Ighodalo answered the questions ranging from security to infrastructure, economy, food security, Diaspora Commission, health, agriculture and many more.

The PDP candidate was able to, time and again, reference his Manifesto on how he intends to provide solution to all the questions if elected on September 21 as the Governor of Edo State.

He highlighted some of the areas where the present government of Governor Godwin Obaseki has done marvelously well and pledged to build on them and said if there are any area that needs adjustment, he would do that.

Ighodalo thanked those who were able to make it to the meeting for their time and show of love for Edo State and support for his aspirations. He assured them that he would not disappoint nor fail them as governor if he is elected.

The next leg of the engagement will be in Manchester, the United Kingdom, on June 26.
