The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP in the September 21 governorship election in Edo State, Dr Asue Ighodalo, has arrived Europe in his determination to engage the Edo Diaspora in continuation of his campaign ahead of the election.

In Edo State, the Diaspora community plays a very significant role in influencing the pattern of voting back home. The engagement is scheduled to start on Monday, June 24 through June 29 and will see him holding crucial meetings with sons and daughters of Edo State in five major cities across Europe.

The itinerary shows that he would be at Reggio Emilia, Milan, Italy, on June 24th; Manchester, UK, 26th; London, UK, on the 27th; Hamburg, Germany, on 28th and Nuremberg, Germany, on 29th of June.

The move is designed to foster community engagement with Ighodalo and enable him to harvest crucial views and input from the Edo Diaspora in Europe.

The gathering is equally designed to provide a platform for Edo Diasporians living in Europe to participate in an open and honest conversation about the future of their beloved state. This initiative underscores Ighodalo’s commitment to transparency and inclusivity in governance, encouraging active involvement from the Diasporian community in shaping local policies and initiatives.

The event promises to be a pivotal moment for Edo people living in Italy to express their concerns, ideas, and hopes directly to Ighodalo. It represents an opportunity for constructive dialogue aimed at addressing pressing issues and possible solutions for a prosperous future.

Ighodalo added that, “I therefore, encourage all Edolites in Italy and environs to join the event and participate actively in shaping the path forward for our dear state.”
