He took minds back into history recalling two major events that has happened in Nigeria which shook the fabrics of the nation all driven by youths.

He added that it is an embarrassment to compare him with other candidates.

The Hon.Commissioner who also applauded the Governor for giving the youths the platform to thrive said he was a strong critics of this government before he was called upon to serve by the Governor which he was sceptical about. And the Governor replied “saying in your criticism, I found sense in them”. He charged the youths to be selfless, dedicated and committed in whatever they do without being money too money conscious.

He appreciated the party for the choice of Dr. Asue Ighodalo as its flag bearer as a result of his competence, capability and his intellectual prowess to drive the economy of Edo State to the the next level. He said, “when you listen to a man talks, you will know the book he has being reading. I always listens to Dr. Asue Ighodalo whenever he talks to tap from his wealth of knowledge. Edo people are lucky to have a man of his calibre to be vying for the position of Governor, I encourage you all to take it and run with it he,” he concluded.

Responding, Dr. Asue Ighodalo said, “I want to sincerely thank everyone of you who took out time to grace this occasion.Today is sunday, everyone else could have been busy but you chose to be here. I appreciate you for your time and also the organisers of this event.

I’m thrilled with the level of creativity I saw here today. I’m marvelled with the level of talents here, those driving the world’s economy are not as intelligent as you are. What then is now holding us back? With the talents and creativity I have seen here today we will be able to drive the Edo economy to a global perspective.

“When I assume office, God’s willing, we will work with the youths, empower them to become financially independent and create the enabling environment for them to thrive”.

The PDP governorship hopefully rounded off by saying he looks forward to holding meetings of this nature in a quarterly basis where he can interact and interface with the youths, entertain criticism and be corrected where it seems he’s not getting it right.
