Why would they want to be part of Nigeria in the first place? Do they want their port to become another Apapa?

REPUBLIC OF BENIN IS NOT ASPIRING TO BE PART OF NIGERIA

The attention of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has been drawn to misleading reports in the media that the Republic of Benin is aspiring to be the 37 State of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The Honourable Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama in the presence of his counterpart from the Republic of Benin granted a Press Interview after a very fruitful meeting between Ministerial delegations from both countries and stated therein "... the President of Benin Republic said he would like the relations between the two countries to be so close as if Benin was the 37th State of Nigeria".

The Federal Republic of Nigeria has no territorial ambition and has never aspired to make Benin or any country as part of Nigeria.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs was therefore quoted out of context and the general public should kindly disregard the wrong information.

Nigerian half baked journalists will always turn a news item to suit their narrative.
Can you imagine. The Benin president said he'd love the bilateral relationship between both countries to be close like Benin is the 37th state. Naija journalists turned his statement upside down.

Yes, very alright thank you. The so called Benin Republic is parts and parcel of Odua Republic then even till today. The so called Benin Republic is a Yoruba language speaking country. It was the French colonialists that stole where the Yorubas called " Idaomi" which was turned to Dahormey republic by the French colonialists. Agbadagiri was also turned to Badagry by the French colonialists. Imeko a town in today's so called Benin Republic usually come to Alafin of Oyo of Oyo land to bring agricultural bi products on yearly basis as a respect to Oyo Kingdom in Yoruba land.
So, thank you Benin Republic President for wanting to bring your people back home to Odua nation; you are very much welcomed.
