Though usually referred to as an Ajegunle Boy, Super Eagles player, Odion Ighalo is also by birth an Edo boy.

It was thus not surprising to see Ighalo hook up with the Executive Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki even as the former Watford player makes fresh plans to extend his hands of fellowship to his state of origin.

It is understood that Ighalo and the governor had a successful meeting which he revealed on his Instagram page, while also hinting at a major announcement that will soon be made public.

"Successful meeting with His Excellency the Governor of Edo State Mr. Godwin Obaseki.major announcement soon????????," he wrote.
