Is Oba Of Benin Partisan? by Noblechykk(m): 8:15pm On Sep 03, 2020
I followed with keen interest the peace meeting called by the revered Oba of Benin to ensure peaceful and violent free election. When I first read about the meeting, I was excited because the manner with which the two leading parties, PDP and APC have been going about the election is worrisome as it portends danger for not just Edo but Nigeria at large. The Oba started by telling us how Oshiomole chose Obaseki against the wish of many. For me, that was unnecessary in such a gathering but that is the basis of my question. Oba said and I quote, "Philip Shaibu, they said you are the tough man inside" I can't recollect the rest of his statement in trying to admonish the deputy governor to call his boys to order but I am disappointed in the Oba that at no point in the 1.11hr video I watched did he caution Ize Iyamu and Oshiomole about Tony Kabaka and his notoriois Lions and Tigers of Edo. So I ask again, is the Oba Partisan?

I think, going to the monarch's palace to put the question to him by yourself would be your best way of asking.

The Oba has first hand Information about what's happening in the State.. For him to Call out Phillip shows that the Deputy Governor is the one arming thugs... Same Philip was the one running from one security agency to another crying that they should arrest Ize-iyamu and Oshiomhole. It's good that it is the Oba that made that statement.
The Oba also mentioned the bad side of the APC also.

Thanks for your analysis. However, I watched the video of Ize Iyamu talking to the Lions and Tiger and it didn't appear to me like a town hall meeting. Such, I think is worthy of mention by the Oba

I think the Oba is partizan,
1. Failure to query Oshiomhole when his thugs attack the governor in Oshiomhole's home town.

2. Failure to query those supporters who booed the PDP and their entourage who came to visit him in his own domain.

3. Failure to call Kabaka to order by letting him know that he should learn to respect elderly people, cause Obaseki is older than Tony Kabaka, and Obaseki is the Head of government and should be respected.

4. Failure to query Oshiomhole who failed to act as a father, who was supposed to be matured.

I can go on and on... Abeg Edo people does not support the Oba.
Oshiomhole was once helped by people, so he helping others is no news.
Obaseki politics aside have been a huge blessing to Edo State.

Edo people distance themselves from the Oba's statement.

I may sound harsh but the truth is bitter, despite you are a father that does not mean that all you say must be correct.
I respect the Oba but that doesn't make him free from criticism if he is seen not to be neutral.

He mocked oshiomole for his error in judgement.

The Oba made it clear he has a strong relationship with oshiomole. They are friends.

He never approved of obaseki as gov. And he still doesn't.

He is not standing on the fence, he will go where oshiomole goes. - he finds it convenient to chide oyegun 4 being partisan ( even though I agree with him) but not oshiomole

The oba is a human being and Free to associate and even have his own opinion. But from d video I saw, he's will throw obaseki under d bus anyway anyday.

Shuaibu is not the architect... He is the d muscle.. The power behind the throne. The guy can mobilize cultists from all over southern Nigeria and militia men from the creeks of nigerdelta and he has been preparing for this day since he became deputy gov. Obaseki and him just found a perfect working relationship of the brain and brawn.

Since everyone knows the truth but hides it with "Godfatherism" Oba of Benin decided to break it down without mincing words.. Obaseki and Shuab went faaaar out of line

Aliko Dangote. Personally left his business to pacify Obaseki when the saga started from fighting elected lawmakers to demolishing houses of APC loyalist, Dangote was shunned

Oba of Benin a first-class king that hardly leave the throne and palace, travelled all the way to Abuja to beg Buhari to intercede unbehalf warring Obaseki/Shuab vs Lawmakers, Commissioners , APC Edo leaders, still Obaseki never stopped his attacks

Senate President Ahmed Lawan, and top National Assembly Members lead a delegate of Senators and Honourables to Edo State just to pacify Obaseki and get the State house of assembly running normally, Obaseki refused to welcome them and even went ahead to release press statement stating that he wouldn't attend any peace meeting as Ahmed Lawan doesn't have Jurisdiction over Edo State


Progressive Governors forum also sent Governors to beg Obaseki he turned them down saying Ganduje and Ajimobi are not in his camp

You made a lot of sense.I was also wondering why he didn't caution iyamu.. I am from Edo state, but I never knew a whole oba would make such a speech.. Sincerely I am also disappointed.. Just imagine how he was talking to a sitting Governor..

I don't know the Genesis of the rift between Obaseki and Oshiomole; none of us do. What you wrote is not the Genesis of the rift rather Obaseki's counter political measure in response to whatever their rift might be. Right or wrong, it is left for unbaised political actors to say. However Oba didn't summon them to discuss the Genesis of their rift; he summoned them to caution both parties on their violent approach towards the coming election which has put Edo state in the news for the wrong reasons. He ended up knowingly or unknowingly siding APC

You veiw the issue based on APC vs PDP Political prism however Oba of Benin spoke on the subject based on Obaseki and Oshiomhole's relationship with him like a Father to two sons.. he knows them personally except Philip Shuabu and his counsel was the best thing Obaseki would ever hear in this period not that of Shuabu or PDP


Oba of Benin isn't a small boy to be hidding facts from Obaseki for any favours

As a man the Oba is a British trained Economist, with US masters in Public Administration, he had worked at United Nations , Ambassador to Sweden, Denmark and Norway in the 80s when both Oshiomhole and Obaseki were still nobodies
