Ahead of the September 21, governorship election in Edo State, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) campaign council has urged supporters to remain steadfast and work for the victory of Dr. Asue Ighodaro, the party’s candidate for the election.

The Director General of the Campaign Council, Hon. Matthew Iduoriyekemwen disclosed this when he led members and dozens of supporters in a solidarity march in Benin City, the State capital.

The party’s flag bearer, Dr. Asue Ighodalo, his deputy, Barr. Osarodion Ogie, the Speaker of the State Assembly, Hon. Blessing Agbebaku and the Deputy Director, Rev. Olu Martins joined in the march across the metropolis.

Continuing, the campaign council DG noted that president Bola Tinubu has always been at the forefront of deepening democracy in Nigeria, adding that “no party in the State should count on external influence to win the election.”

On his part, the party’s candidate, Dr. Asue Ighodalo urged the people to support the PDP to win the election and

admonished them to get thier Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs) to vote “for more upward movement.”

He added: “we will vote for PDP to ensure that the votes are counted, and we will follow it to the collation centre until we are announced the winner so that the state will continue to prosper.”
