Asue Ighodalo Abscond From Schedule Meeting With State University Student by ThompsonJoo: 8:29am On Jun 22

Ambrose Alli University students expressed deep frustration and disappointment today as the scheduled town hall meeting with PDP gubernatorial candidate Asue Ighodalo did not materialize. The event, eagerly anticipated by students seeking clarity on the university's current state and the candidate's plans, saw many students traveling from various locations to attend.

Despite the meeting being slated for 1 PM, students had assembled as early as 11 AM, only to find themselves waiting in vain for Ighodalo, who chose not to appear. This no-show elicited mixed reactions among students, with some expressing shock at his absence while others cited the PDP's reputation for disregarding schedules. Notably, Governor Godwin Obaseki, during his tenure, similarly snubbed a university meeting, which left students feeling neglected.

Ahead of the meeting, skepticism prevailed among students, with some opting not to attend due to past experiences of guest disrespect by the party, while others attended cautiously hopeful for engagement.

Sources close to the students revealed that Ighodalo's advance team arrived at the venue and observed a palpable sense of anger among students regarding Governor Obaseki's administration of the university. They sought Ighodalo's stance on these issues, armed with evidence in the form of videos and photographs depicting unfulfilled promises made by Governor Obaseki during previous visits. Allegedly, the governor had been nicknamed "CHO-CHO-CHO GOVERNOR" by students, highlighting their dissatisfaction with his failure to deliver on promised infrastructural projects, making him the first Edo State governor in history to oversee an eight-year term without constructing any university structures as pledged during convocations.

Confronted with the students' disgruntlement and wary of potential embarrassment, Ighodalo's advance team reportedly advised him to abstain from the meeting, a decision aimed at averting further discontent.

The no-show by Asue Ighodalo has left Ambrose Alli University students disillusioned and questioning the commitment of political figures towards addressing their concerns, underscoring growing skepticism towards political promises within the student body.
