Oshiomhole Can Never Appoint The Oba Of Benin, Edo Youths Scream Out!!! by Lenny5k: 11:17pm On May 24, 2016
Even as some websites and blogs are publishing what many Edo Youths calls an Insult to the Royal Throne, the man in charge of Social Media for the Edo State government Mr Victor Oshioke, released a press statement stating that the Edo State government has approved the appointment of the Crown Prince of Benin, as the Oba of Benin. This resulted in a Hot debate and exchange on Social Media as many Vibrant Edo Youths would not have it, regardless of whether Mr Oshioke quotes a section of the law in his Press release or not. What many youths are saying is “Do not Insult our Royal Throne with that Jagon” No matter what your take on this issue is, one thing you must admire about the Edos including the Youths, is their deep Love and Respect for their traditional rulers of which the most revered and respected Oba of benin is the Highest. A true first class Oba in every sense of the word. Below are snap shots of this unfolding story. Please share and add your voice to it

It is a misnormal, not in Benin. In Benin the king is born. The crown Prince is an Oba in waiting with or without govt staff of office. You can only talk of appointment when the throne is not hereditary. If you read that portion the ARABIAN quoted, you will discover that govt do not appoint traditional rulers, they only recognise.
The making of an Oba in Benin is an age long tradition that even politics cannot alter.
Some went to school but they lack basic comprehension, of which if not well managed can lead to chaos.

My understanding is that, the governor, as in this case, is not appointing the Oba, But merely approving, which is just a formality. I believe this is a constitutional requirement. He is not in anyway involved in the process of the Oba's emergence.

Some people are just reacting emotionally without thinking right.

To all Bini folks here,the only thing that can prevent this from happening is a resurgence of the Edo empire that was crushed in 1897 undecided

Ignorant Edo Youths.

The King makers conduct a selection process to appoint the New Oba, but it is the state Governor who approves such selections. Governors do not usually go contrary to the choice of the King makers and Oshiomole hasn't done that.

Edo Youths, receive sense!

The most useless quote of the day.
If you know very little about Edo history it would help to just shut your mouth.
The Obaship in Edo is hereditary, the first son automatically becomes the Oba.
For example the emir of Kano is chosen out of many, same goes for the Oni.
It is different in Bini Kingdom, no governor or president can name someone the oba of bini bypassing the first son, it can never stand, he won't be recognized.

It is not even a Governor, the Local Government Chairperson (yes, even a female) is the boss of the king on his domain! That is the law!

Its not the youth that lack knowledge but the governor and its aides. I'm not from Edo state but I think the governor does not have any right to appoint the Obaship. Its a "DIVINE RIGHT"___ not Constitutional Right. I guess you and the Governor should go and read bout "Divine Right Theory"


Meanwhile, I'm waiting for Hon Patrick Obahiagbon to make an official statement bout this issue cheesy

Very funny.A King that's a tenant of the Ogiame? undecided
[b]
Its been proven again. The best historical secrets are revealed when the Royal fathers bicker or jostle publicly (often on newspaper pages, and in the legal courts) for power, or for the throne . The current race to wear the Bini crown sees a Bini version of history agreeing with Yoruba history . This version has Oranmiyan visiting Benin and establishing a new ruling house, as the Yoruba have always maintained. By the way, Oranmiyan, was a grandson ofOduduwa, the great Yoruba warrior king deity. His father was Okanbi, Oduduwa’s only son Oranmiyan was one of 16 grandchildren, which are named in this partial family tree . The Yoruba hold that Oranmiyan bore a son with a Bini woman, and this son was the first Oba of Benin. More recently there’s been a new and controversial claim from some Bini quarters that it was the other way round and Oduduwa was a runaway Bini slave who founded Ile Ife, and who later sent his son/grandson to rule in Benin!
“The Ekiokpagha treaty is the compulsory rent a new Oba-elect must pay before he is pronounced an Oba of Benin kingdom and before he is also allowed occupation of the Benin kingdom leased to Oba Eweka 1 by Ogiamien Erebo in 12.00AD.” “The Ekiokpagha treaty clearly defined the status of Ogiamien as aborigine and permanent landlord while the Oba of Benin kingdom as a permanent tenant,”
High Chief Monday Wehere, director of information and external affairs of the Ogiamien family said on Tuesday.
“The Ogiamien is the custodian of the 32 previous Ogisos that had ruled Igodomigodo and the aborigine Binis for over 300 years before the forceful introduction of obaship against the decision of the aborigine Binis while the Oba of Benin (the family) are descendants of the sixth Ooni of Ife, Oba Oranmiyan, the son of Okanbi. “Therefore, it would be difficult for Ogiamien to pledge allegiance to an invader – Oba of Benin – who is also a tenant,” “Oba Eweka dynasty has no relationship whatsoever with the Ogiso/Ogiamien dynasty and they are now forcing themselves into our dynasty by fraudulently claiming that Prince Eheneden Erediauwa is now the 70th ruler of Benin kingdom.”
“This is completely false. THEY ARE DESCECEDANTS OF ORANMIYAN ,” In bolded above is what the Yoruba tradition has always stated.The practice of sending the heads of demised Oba of Bini to Ile Ife was apparently stopped in a bid to hide the history it has been claimed . History can never be re-written.
