The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the forthcoming Edo governorship election scheduled for September 21, 2024, Asue Ighodalo, said on Tuesday that he is sure of victory in the election.

Ighodalo said this when he received his Certificate of Return from the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) today.

He further stated that the PDP is confident that they will remain in power in Edo State.

On his part, Ighodalo appreciated the party for the confidence they have in him, promising to transform Edo state into a first-world economy if elected as governor.

He also called on other aspirants and members of the party to partner with him in the forthcoming gubernatorial election.

In his own words, “The contest is over. Let’s come together as one. We need to work together as one team. We must unite to retain our seat at Osadebe Avenue and drive the progress of our state.”

“I promise that this ticket is for all of us. I will take your advice; we will work together in the interest of our people. You’re all great men and women with varying capabilities and capacities. We will bring these capabilities together to move our state forward.”
