Obota is good evening,
Yes.. it means good evening BUT its not a family greeting...

What is ur mother's family greeting?

and it's a known fact that the ogbomosho man Ben Adekunle via his 3rd commandos liberated the Midwest
Adekunle fought from south of Biafra not through the Midwest... Do some education... U can't be spoonfed everything

, Edo state may have some mineral resources but it's not in commercial quantity like bayelsa or even rivers,
I thought u would have mentioned any South West states... It seems u agree that the South West doesn't have any commercial mineral resources

and lastly it's clear that most traditional rulers in Nigeria are sitting puppets both in Yorubaland and Bini environs recieving monthly stipends from federal government, traditional rulers who can't protect themselves not to talk about their subjects...
Everyone knows that traditional rulers are powerless.. but we Benin will continue to respect him... We don't disregard our culture

history is history and what matters now is who currently is in charge of your lands and it's crude oil resources which was gotten without a chieftaincy title.
Lmaooooooo... U are living in the past... Crude oil will cease to be relevant in the next 10 years

I don't need a chieftaincy title in Benin to unseat a king, all I need do is sponsor one of my cousins to become governor of your state and distabilize the traditional systems and install my pick and crush dissent with the bullet and bribes.
Easier said than done cheesy... Why don't u try it and see ur money evaporate into the sky... Seems u don't learn .... One of the former Edo State governor Anthony Onyearugbulem tried to rotate it... He was met with serious opposition from the Benin people and he died mysteriously... Ur one cousin can not fight against the people of Benin... Why don't u try and see ur money go to waste...

Even tinubu wanted to carry his political Empire over to Edo but the Edo people showed him that power belongs to the people

Tbh ...This part of ur comment seems like u are about to break ...
Don't cry bro.. life's not that hard cheesy


You're bitching because of a puppet king. When shit hits the fan your chieftaincy title and oba doesn't save you when fulani bandits dagger you and bang your mother.... channel your energy to profitable stuff and stop cuming and jizzin to the past unverified glory of better men.

Lmaooooooo... From bragging abt getting a chieftaincy title to bragging abt sponsoring a cousin to destabilize the palace to now talking abt the Fulani (that is also banging ur father) disturbing Edo land...
Bro.. you are very unstable... No one asked for ur contribution abt Edo state... Stick to ur South West...

And I have every right to brag abt my past... I'm very proud of my ancestors and their exploits.. and I'll keep on respecting them... I don't care what u outsiders think... After all he's not ur king...

When the Fulani comes, the South South is ready to deal with them...

A colonial siting arrangement.... Lol if we are to do pre colonial siting arrangement the chief priest wont be there at all


Again the colonial sitting arrangement is wrong alafin of oyo ought to be the one replacing ooni of ife, the British elevated the alafin, not ooni of ife, who awolowo elevated himself after the British had left



Ask him where the Alaafin is... Abi is the Alaafin now a useless Oba?

You're known for your falsehood on this platform, what pains you is the fact that your Edo hamlet was liberated by a Yoruba man... Something your oba couldn't do..so you tell yourself a lie and repeat to yourself and others with the believe it magically becomes fact.

No natural resources but far more developed than most oil rich south south states. Oil rich small state but makes up a large number of trafficked humans.

What's this fool saying Sha... What did u expect the Oba to do? Is he in charge of any army?

How did u expect him to defend Benin with no army...

Why didn't ur Ooni or ur Alaafin raise an army to stop the invasion instead of Gowon?
..



According to ur Wikipedia, Benjamin adekunle fought in the Midwest but he didn't chase the Biafrans back from ore... He only came when Murtala had don the main work

The same Wikipedia noted who expelled the Biafrans from Midwest and it wasn't Benjamin

Lol same jazz and opposition that couldn't stop the british from burning your little kingdom to the ground or opposition that couldn't stop you guys from being inconsequential minorities.
Like I earlier said; Edo state is irrelevant and except I want to go into the clay business would I consider grabbing the state.

Foolish talk from a inconsequential simpleton... Tinubu not getting Edo state was not because of Edo people, dumbo.....it was simply an internal conflict between Tinubu faction and the buhari northern cabal faction to trim tinubu's wings, those who have ears in power know that obaseki is a buhari's boy reason why he travelled to abuja shortly after his "re-election" to svck on buhari's ballsack and pledge his loyalty, it's partly reason for some few federal projects in Edo state of recent, and there's still a case in court that will determine the future of your obaseki. In actuality edo state belongs to buhari and that whole tinubu affair was just to trim his wings and embarrass him and oshiomole. Power belongs to power.

Making excuses for ur lord and saviour Tinubu...

All this long story will not change the fact that he lost despite coming on national TV to tell the EDO people not to vote for Obaseki..

Whether Obaseki wins or not in court, the Edo people with the way they defended their votes have come to show people that power belongs to the people when they demand it...

Console oshiomole and Tinubu for me
.. their money don enter bush cheesy

Your ancestors and mine probably sold slaves for a bottle of brandy while america was building railways and maybe you should check the meaning of "king" in the dictionary, he's not a king but a ceremonial elder statesman.

Seems you had brain damage as a kid thus reason for retardation.

the male ruler of an independent state, especially one who inherits the position by right of birth.

Last time i checked Benin "kingdom" is a local government area within a minority state in within a country. He inherited his glorified post of SA to the president on tribal and cultural affairs (Edo zone) from his dad.
