In his opening address, the convener, Chief Olu Fashanu thanked the State Governor, Godwin Obaseki and expressed satisfaction of the Akoko-Edo PDP in the choice of Engr. Omobayo Godwins Marvelous as the new Deputy Governor of Edo State.

Segun Saiki, Senatorial Leader; Pastor Bayo Ogedengbe and Barrister Emmanuel Agbaje who were unavoidably absent due to the new Deputy Governor, Engr. Omobayo Marvellous Godwins’ official visit to Akoko-Edo.

Chief Olu Fashanu said he gathered these leaders of thought to productively engage and interact with Dr. Asue Ighodalo to ensure total electoral victory through maximizing the potentials of the Party’s structure for the September 21 2024 Governorship election.

Using the SWOT analysis, Chief Fashanu meticulously highlighted the Party’s commanding political structure and willing electorate empathy. These goodwill and opportunities he advised, necessitate the need to proactively build and develop strong campaign teams with experienced political leadership at Ward levels in Akoko-Edo and beyond. This, he pointed out, would neutralize voters intimidation being orchestrated by the so-called ‘Federal Might’.

In his address, Dr. Ighodalo thanked and commended the Party leaders for the honest analytical report and suggestions on ways and means of resolving the Party’s internal issues.

Dr. Asue who urged the leaders not to rest on their oars declared: “PDP is the only Party that can rescue this nation because, we have capable members with the right vision, focus and patriotic zeal to reposition Nigeria.”
Speaking further, Ighodalo said: “PDP remains the only Party since 1999 that is still standing, while other parties have since either collapsed, fragmented or became amalgamation of strange,odd and unhealthy bedfellows. A contraption of complicated forced Union.”

Ighodalo advised in strong terms the need for the Party to close ranks and strategize to permanently defeat Nigeria’s development nemesis, the All Progressive Congress APC. Dr. Asue Ighodalo said that verifiable available data shows that PDP is far ahead of other parties and assured: “the Party’s campaign structure will soon be unveiled”
