Oga erico welcome from property section. The Oba is the chairman of all traditional rulers in Benin and from time his subjects even extended to other communities in Delta state.

A very good example the queen of England in simple language should only be the queen of those in England but she is also the queen in Canada, Australia and some areas in UK. With appointed governor generals in various countries representing her.

The Edo don't cover binis alone but a group of tribes as it has been from time. The Oba of Benin today came to power via various tribal chiefs that makes up Edo coming together to appoint the family. The ijaws migrated to this region they claim via the river route which link Delta state to Edo State.

No one is saying they don't have right to the lands but they can't just put a monarch in place with out proper approves and the most annoying and insulting part is that this monarch pay respect to a king of another land. That to me is colonialism.
ahah well thanks for the welcome, I greet you in multiple language grin grin grin
i get waht you are saying being a chair person and a Ruler are two different things.When We where bendel State The Oba of |benin was the chairman too but no one was under him per say, in the Old days that would be determined by WAR.But today life is very much different.In as much as no money is coming from teh Oba Im afraid the Ijaws are free to choose thier leader,its called freedom of association.
The Quuen on England is the Queen of all comonwealth Nations of which Nigeria and Ghana belong to.is the oBA OF BENIN Ubder the queen? Nop, but in the Old days He would be.
If you look at this carefully, this has no effect on the benin people, but I suspect there is an interior motive for this repulsion.Greed sometimes make people lose all.it was this same greed that caused problem btw Ijaws and Itshekiris just now .Reason being some one heard a rumour of an institute that was to be built and they decided to buy the whole land so as to collect compensation frm FG, Unknow to them part of the bought Lands falls under Ijaw jurisdiction, wahala statrt.,

You live on Land to enjoy water resources (crude oil, fish etc.). The Ijaws risk lives to live on water and protect those resources from foreign coastal thieves. Now, u don't want them! OK oh..make una yield to their request because if any thing happens to Ijaws, we Igbos will assist by all means.
have u been able to assist ur leader (KANU) who was chased into his rat hole after the mil op in the se?

shut up u r not Esans you r an impostor

This is one problem we have in Edo state. Which word in Bini doesn't mean or if not thesame as Esan. Even when the Oba of Benin visited the Esan rulers after his coronation, even the rulers there stated it that the Oba of Benin still remains the father to all.

This whole Bini and Esan bitterness is a complete foolishness on all our parts.

Size or number does not imply superiority or quality, stop boasting about the number of Ijaw people, stop deceiving yourself. Those people you mentioned Esan, Owan, Etsako all acknowledged the Oba so stop your divisionist idea. Besides those languages are Edoid, would you also tell me that the [b]Ijaws in Edo state speaksthe same language with those in rivers state
?

To the Bolded YES with dialect(Ijaw nation).Im not IJAW but just trying to Understand the reasons behind the small matter being blown out of proportion.I dont think there is any Legal base for this Argument,if the land was not thiers then the benins might have a case but nahhhh.I would have found this bro hahah more appealing if the ownership of the land was what was in question rather than just a named ruler.

At least I you have a problem at least we can find a solution but don't you think not knowing the source of your problem is bad problem.

Someone is writing now that we are begging, the bini's should listen?

When an armed robber says, now that I'm telling u to open the door, u won't oooooo ( do u know what that means? )
thank God u recognise that the ijaws are armed robbers, what an apt analogy.

Remember as these guys have oil companies under their control ? Now they heard about seaport then the next move was to elect a traditional ruler to claim benefits. Every tribe can appoint elders, no problem but a monarch under an area with existing chairman and not even inform the chairman but instead pay homage to another chairman in Bayelsa state. Aba now. There are processes in place for appointing kings. Can the binis or uhrobo or Yoruba or any tribe at all do the same in their area? No, because ijaws people will kill them.

My oga the lands in that area are all gone. How I know? I actually wanted to buy a land there when I heard of the seaport too. Only to find out that people in power don floor the area. I had to back out.

I am from Warri but I attended school in Benin. Your asawana is asawana today becasue there is a reason to have the asawana situation, that is Ijaws were fighting Itsekiris and Urhobos of Warri. Bini people have not gotten any reason to engage in communal clashes, so do not use that as a yardstick to Project the outcome. Yes one thief, one cultist, one agbero acting individually is nothing to be scared off, but collectively, bro you are asking for big big trouble. let me ask you... whenever we had anti-sap or anti-government demonstrations all over Nigeria, go ask, Benin own is always out of control.. i never heard that of bayelsa or rivers getting out of hand. yes, the so called war lords u are talking about are like 1% of all ijaws fighting for their own greed, but IF THE OBA OF BENIN, THROUGH PROXIES DECLARE WAR ON THE IJAWS, hmmmm, i can tell you confidently that 80% of bini youths will heed the call if not 90%, no worry - make dem try am first.. benin is not itsekiri oooo undecided benin people stubborn ooooo hmmmm, dem get mind ooooo. anyways siddon look

my broda tell them d last govnor who had problem brought his families to beg oba when abacha bought is troops to test the powerfull oba half of his men died while going back to lagos ...ogiame took oba to court the case became on hia head and his families brought courpse to beg the obas ...anini was the only criminal who changed nigerian constitution now every held of a police in nigeria cant be from that particular state because of a benin man anybody thats is the enemy of oba is doomed and dont see this as a war only the benin cultist in auchi,ekpoma,uniben,biu etc go finish ijaw
