Describing him as having a distinguished career in the corporate world, and has proven himself time and again as a leader with solid mental and moral qualities that set him apart from the crowd. “As the chairman of various boards of banks and multinationals such as the Dangote Group, Okomu Oil, Sterling Bank, including establishing and running one of Nigeria’s largest law firms, Dr. Ighodalo has demonstrated unparalleled competence and efficiency with strategic vision and sound judgment driving positive outcomes for decades. Under his leadership, organizations have thrived, achieving sustainable growth and profitability even in the face of challenges.”

According to him “As governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr. Ighodalo brings an amazing wealth of experience and expertise to the table. His expertise as both an economist and a lawyer with a solid background in corporate governance has equipped him with a unique perspective on addressing complex economic challenges – a quality that is particularly crucial in the current economic turmoil facing Nigeria as a whole and Edo State in particular.

“With his wealth of knowledge and experience, Dr. Ighodalo is well-positioned to steer the state towards a path of sustainable development and prosperity. As a matter of fact, as a leader in the corporate world, Dr. Ighodalo’s track record speaks for itself. This he will replicate as governor.

“As edolites file out to elect their governor come September, 2024, two options are before them. They will choose between a man that Is ready to lead like Dr. Asue Ighodalo or settle for a mediocre with barely any education or exposure to his name, nor any pedigree and who brings nothing to the table and who has gone missing in action, hiding from the people he wants to lead. As a people, we have seen what it means to enthrone a half baked mediocre. The people of Edo State will surely choose competence and capacity to deliver. The last two Governors from Esan extraction were all Professors. The Esans have a knack for putting forth their very best. They can’t lower the bar and in following this age long tradition, they have put forth Dr. Asue Ighodalo, a distinguished Esan son.”

He insisted that the people of Edo State look towards the future, rest assured that Dr. Asue Ighodalo is the leader they need—a visionary, a strategist, and a beacon of integrity who will lead with wisdom, courage, and grace.

“With his unparalleled competence and unwavering moral compass, Dr. Ighodalo is poised to make a lasting impact on the state and its people, ushering in a new era of prosperity and progress for all, he added.
