-By Austen Akhagbeme:
A 38-year-old man named Kenneth Ifeloa, arrived in Benin-city today on a five-day journey on foot from Auchi, Etsako-West local government area of Edo state, to show support for the governorship aspirations of Dr Azemhe Azena, a foremost Labour Party ( LP) aspirant in the next year governorship election in Edo state.
The man, an IT Engineer, embarked on his adventurous journey on Tuesday, November 20th at 6:10 am and arrived in Benin on the 25th of November at 11:20 am on Saturday.
Speaking to pressmen on his arrival, Mr Kenneth Ifeloa who hails from Amah in Anwain clan in the Etsako-west local government area said that his motivation was the deprivation and the deplorable state of infrastructure in Edo state in general.
” When I heard that Pastor Azemhe Azena is interested in contesting for the governorship position in the next election, knowing the calibre of a leader that he is, I was elated. Then I felt to thank him by creating awareness so we do not miss this golden opportunity”, he added.
The popular televangelist and philanthropist, Dr Azemhe Azena, who was equally awed by this noble but risky journey embarked upon by Mr Ifeloa, received him in the company of supporters in his home in Aduwawa.
Dr Azemhe while praying for Mr Kenneth Ifeloa, promised that he would not disappoint the good people of Edo state, especially those who put themselves in discomfort like Mr Ifeloa, to project his desires for the state when elected as governor of Edo state next year.
