Moreover, Oyamendan praised Dr. Ighodalo’s integrity and unwavering commitment to combating corruption, showing the importance of character in public office.

Drawing attention to Dr. Ighodalo’s extensive experience and expertise in socio-economic matters, Oyamendan emphasized the candidate’s ability to address pressing issues facing Edo State, including insecurity and poverty. He commended Dr. Ighodalo’s visionary approach to governance, which prioritizes progress, education, and poverty eradication as pillars of development.

As the election date approaches, Oyamendan urged voters to prioritize equity, justice, and fairness in their decision-making process. He emphasized the significance of each vote in shaping the future of Edo State and urged voters to consider Dr. Ighodalo’s candidacy with impartiality and discernment.

Oyamendan affirmed that his endorsement of Dr. Asue Ighodalo is not driven by radicalism but by a genuine belief in the candidate’s ability to lead Edo State towards prosperity and progress. He called upon all stakeholders, including social media commentators, to respect his decision and to approach the electoral process with a spirit of constructive engagement and informed choice.
