A support group, the Asue Ighodalo Movement (AIM) has inaugurated a magnificent independent campaign office for the Edo State governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr. Asue Ighodalo.

AIM said it would  use the office to propagate the messages and vision of the candidate to the people of the state and prosecute its campaign for him and the party from there ahead of the 21 September election.

The sprawling building, located at Aimure Street, GRA, in the heart of Benin City, the state capital, was thrown open for use on Wednesday with fanfare, typical of all political gatherings and campaigns. It demonstrated an unprecedented show of support and enthusiasm for Ighodalo’s candidacy,

The inauguration, which was attended by a large crowd of party chieftains and stalwarts from various local government areas across the state, featured powerful speeches and music as the supporters danced to the campaign songs blaring from giant speakers.

The atmosphere was electrified when Ighodalo arrived the venue to the warm welcome of party stalwarts who had gathered.

During the inauguration, AIM’s National Coordinator, Hon Daniel Asekhame, who donated the huge building, said that the group owe it a duty to give Edo State a man “who is competent, capable, compassionate and has the vision to move the state forward into the realm of development and prosperity”.

He invited the electorate to vote for Ighodalo and the PDP, and urged them not to be too tired on the day of election, saying they should sacrifice just two hours to wait on the queue and cast their votes for Ighodalo.

“Today, we are here to tell all of you that you all have it as a duty to vote for a good governor who can lead the state aright. A man of competence, capacity, character, compassion and vision. He will not fail you. We know that Ighodalo is capable and that he is the best man for the job.

“Don’t feel too tired on the day of election. Only two hours, please stay on the queue and vote for Ighodalo and the PDP. Don’t say I am tired. Don’t fix another thing for that day. Go out and vote on that day. Then, tell others before that day. Ighodalo.. E go do am!”

He admonished the supporters, who proudly dorned their branded yellow face-caps with a conspicuously visible AIM logo, to stay strong in the pursuit of the goals of AIM.

In a brief speech punctuated by loud applause and approval, Ighodalo thanked AIM’s National Coordinator. He also thanked the sponsor of the event, Aare Frank Momoh, and all those present, saying their commitment was outstanding.

He assured them that he would do his best possible to bring remarkable development to the state and make it a place where people feel safe to live, to do business and relax. He insisted that if voted into power, he would not fail or disappoint them.

Ighodalo was later conducted round the offices.

Decorated with large banners of Ighodalo and his running mate and in the colours of the PDP, the campaign office boasts of a large parking space for outdoor activities also.
