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
You, your father n entire lineage are nobody in Edo state so you can rot in hell with what you think. The king as spoken, your father who is a nobody talk less of you is inconsequential in all schemes.

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.

We are saying the same thing

The oba got it wrong....he should have been neutral in his dealings...if he really want to bring about peace....but his prejudice approach will only anger one party the more.

Depends on where you looking at it from.

To me i would have advised he just didn't scold any party but again this oba isn't a "royal father" for no reason.

A father chastises when necessary, he has information, he has his right to air his opinion.

He isn't a political beggar

But I must say that this outing just made me understand that apc would win the election (the battle was always going to be in Edo South).

The head of Edo South just gave a pathway to apc

Thank you. Your position is obvious.

Your position is equally obvious.
Your post and all your comments/responses are obviously tilted to Obaseki bias.
So i don't see any need for you to make a post asking whether the Oba is partisan cuz you already have an informed opinion that he's partisan.

I equally understand that you probably put it out to seek and affirm your sentiments.

WATCHOVER:
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.
shut your thin mouth up. Are you based in edo?. Do you have first hand info like the Oba. The Oba is talking from an informed position. His onogies are every where. Mind you the violence at the palace etc. They know what is happening. Yes thugs of both parties can say what they like,but when someone like Obaseki &shuaibu coming out puplicly to say they are ready to dish it out leaves a lot to be desired

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?
As a seasoned diplomat, I think he was speaking to the issues politically. Obaseki and Shuaibu are the ones with responsibility of ensuring security. Ize-Iyamu has no such responsibility, he's just an aspirant. The Oba knows only Obaseki can determine if there would be peace or not, he has the security apparatus to unsettle the polity.
However, your observations are very keen, and any sane person would think along those lines; but I just believe he doesn't want to foist the enemies of Edo on Edolites.
PS: Don't mind the emotional but inane outbursts of some people here; they think online rhetorics will affect the outcome of the election in Edo. We in Edo, know where we stand.

Something happened at the palace gate when PDP flagged their campaign. That thing angered the Oba of Benin. It isn't done. People here are quick to forget that this same Oba spoke against godfatherism and consensus candidates. He blessed both.

He is not partisan but he is only saying the things he knows about. The Oba of Benin once said that it was the PDP government that appointed him ambassadors, so he knows his onions.

This is not about politics.
We are Edo people, we dy Benin city and everyone knows what's going on.

It's just because of politics we are closing our eyes and supporting violence on both sides.

The Oba has spoken.

First of all Obaseki and Shuaibu are the chief security officer of the state.
Kabaka is just a pawn in the hand of Oshiomole the same way Muntari and Ebo stone are pawns in the hand of Shuabu. The Oba called the main actors. Before the Oba called them, do you think he hasn't spoken to Ebo Stone and Kabaka privately. When he referred to Shauibu as the tough one he is right. Obaseki isn't tough, go and ask around in Benin city, they will tell you who Shuaibu is. We all know Shuaibu is a rugged man. So the Oba did not hide his words. The Oba knows the capability of everyone of the actors there and he spoke to them.

I am a PDP man and I tell you, Shuaibu is a dogged man. The Oba no mince words. He spoke to everyone of them. People in Edo state understand this and everybody blood don calm down small. Come to Benin, people are happy for what he did. If you felt he came too hard on Shuaibu, e get why.....lol

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


After all this your rubbish c.v presentation of the Oba it still changes nothing that the Oba is partisan.na cowardice and mumuism go destroy Una for dis Nigeria. You don hear British queen or other prominent world monarchs dey put mouth for politics? And even if they do decide to call opponents together for a peace parley,would you hear them asking stupid partisan questions? Make Una carry Una Mumu dey Una houses joor,stupid Nigerian youths.
All Nigerian monarchs are nothing but money guzzling bears.

Your last statement is hilarious.

So you know more about Edo than the Oba of Benin?

Or your authority is more ? grin

You oversmoked weed - Igbo grin


Even though I respect the oba of Benin and hold him in high esteem I strongly believe that his opinion about the whole drama playing out in Edo State is coloured largely due to the fact that he has warm relationship with Captain Hosa Okunbor who is a major backer of Ize Iyamu. I traveled to Abuja by road last week Thursday and returned on Sunday via the same route to Benin. To be honest all campaign assets of Obaseki/Shiabu hoisted through the length of the road from Auchi to Iyamho oshiomole''s home town have all been destroyed. Fairness of thought at all times and circumstances is sacrosanct for traditional rulers and leaders of thought.

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..


this is absolutely why the Oba of Benin is in support of the social media bill. please stop misleading the public for your own tribal or political gains. the Benin throne as over the years been non partisan, what the Oba want from obaseki is for him being in office and is considered the eldest son to ize iyamu and the Oba been the father want obaseki to realize that he is the eldest and that ize iyamu is his brother.
browse the event yourself and see or listen for yourself before you let this self centered individuals in this forum to corrupt your listening mind because they want to post nonsense for their tribal or personal interest.

best way to picture this event is to view it this angle

Oba is the father
obaseki is the eldest son
ize iyamu is the second son

oshiomole is a friend to ize iyamu and an outsider who is in crisis with obaseki

oshiomole in this context is an outsider because it is obaseki and ize iyamu who are really on the race not oshiomole as you know that was why it was obaseki and ize iyamu that was called out to embrace each other.

obaseki is the one in power
ize iyamu is the one seeking the position

the Oba must come in with words to plead and cursion obaseki not to use his power because he is in office that was why the Oba made reference to Jonathan.


long live the Oba of Benin
long live Edo state
long live FRN.

Okay I thought I was the only one who noticed... I watched the video keenly from the start to end,

From his diction, I deduced the following:

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.


check out what he told oyegun at the meeting before you make statement and also what the Oba said about the palace not been partisan at the end of the meeting.
