Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State, his counterparts in Sokoto and Rivers States, Aminu Tambuwal and Nyesom Wike led other guests on a courtesy visit to the Palace of Oba of Benin, Oba Ewuare II, ahead of the flag-off of Governor Godwin Obaseki’s campaign for re-election in the September 19, 2020 Governorship poll in Edo State.

Igbere TV reports that other governors who were in the state for the flag-off include Duoye Diri, Seyi Makinde and Sen. Bala Muhammed of Bayelsa, Oyo and Bauchi States respectively.

Other guests at the event include Deputy Governor of Ondo State, Agboola Ajayi; National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus; Chairman of DAAR Communications, Raymond Dokpesi; Chief Tom Ikimi; Sen. Clifford Ordia and Barr. Ken Imasuagbon, among others.

The event is taking place at the Lawn Tennis Court of the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, with “strict compliance with coronavirus (COVID-19) directives issued by the Federal Government and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for public gatherings.”

So?

Oba's palace is widely opened to all contestants. So save us this inconsequential nonsense.

Such a beautiful palace. The Oba of Benin has some great class, and he knows how to stay non partisan.

Modernization is necessary to keep the palace in fine shape while revealing the glory of the African people. It makes the African culture enviable with great taste, and doesn't put us in global perspective as animals in the forest. You'll be ashamed walking into an ancient delapidated palace just because we wana preserve our cultural heritage. I know there are sections of the palace that still have artefacts and historical materials preserved. Also most kings this days are very well educated and exposed, so u can't keep them in some building that looks like a mechanic workshop in the name of being custodians of culture and tradition.

another failed governor, among the top ten highest federal allocation earners, among the top five highest borrowing states but not among the top twenty working governors, I wonder why the youths dont realise there's no difference between these two political parties in Nigeria

Long may he reign.

I would like to also see the courtroom of Ooni of Ife as well as his counterpart in Sokoto shocked

So we can do petty argument on whose courtroom is arguably the most expensive grin

These men live in opulence sha, but the unwritten rule remains that they never criticize the govt. of the day. Just be diplomatic as Dangote and you'll be fine, but if you become a Sanusi you'll be sent to a permanent isolation centre grin

Why modernize a palace but keep customs ancient? There is conflict!

Either modernize both or keep both ancient.

A palace should be distinct from a auditorium....or a ball room.

When a distinction cannot be made it is tasteless and loses purpose as a house of customs and traditions....however much opulence is wasted decorating it.
