In his characteristic show of humility and love for the common man, Dr Azemhe Azena, the NNPP Governorship Candidate, told the story of his humble beginning as he visited the market women and Leaders of the Barracks Market in Ikpoba Hill, Benin City on Friday.

Accompanied by a large crowd of teeming youth in the area, the young gubernatorial candidate emphasized the need for the people, especially the common man, to vote for someone “who has experienced hunger, dropped out of school multiple times and was raised by a market woman just like most of you here today”

Dr Azemhe Azena told them about his challenges as a teenager and his burning desire to alleviate the sufferings of ordinary people like them, through purposeful Leadership and unconditional love for the lowly.

He further stated his desire to make education free, from primary school to secondary school, to enable the children of the poor to acquire basic education.

Mr Patrick Izojie, who spoke on behalf of the leaders of the market, assured the governorship candidate of their full support while promising to take the candidate’s message of love and desire to help the lowly, to the nooks and crannies of Ward 2 and 3, in Ikpoba Hill.
