Asue Ighodalo, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) gubernatorial candidate in Edo State, has been meeting with top political leaders from the Edo South Senatorial District as part of his state-wide consultations ahead of the official start of the election campaign in September 2024. The closed-door meeting was attended by former Edo State governors John Odigie Oyegun and Lucky Igbinedion, as well as other prominent leaders such as Senator Ehigie Uzamere, Harrison Omangbon, and Larry Ogieva.

The meeting, which was kept under wraps, is part of Ighodalo's efforts to engage with stakeholders across Edo State in preparation for the upcoming gubernatorial election. A source familiar with the meeting stated that the attendees seemed to have had a positive and successful interaction, based on their demeanor and friendly banter. However, the source was unable to provide details on the specific agenda or resolutions reached during the meeting.

Ighodalo has been actively consulting with various stakeholders across the state, including a recent visit to Uromo in Edo Central, where he was endorsed by the Okpebholo family. The PDP candidate's state-wide consultations and visitations are seen as vital steps in building support and momentum ahead of the official campaign season, which is set to begin on April 24, 2024.

Why this matters: The outcome of the Edo State gubernatorial election in September 2024 could have significant implications for the political landscape of the state and the broader region.
