That's a very thoughtful question.
Will they return the revenue generated from that artifact over the years?

Again, can our people put it to economic use or send it to the "dusty cabinet" where other artworks have been languishing for ages?

Nothing to be happy about. Upon their returns, they would be showcased for 9 months with massive media involvement and documentation. After that, it is taken back to Europe, or this this time, America or even Asian Tigers.

This is really a heart warming news for our Benin people and Nigeria at large.
We shall keep pushing till all our stolen artifacts are returned back to base.
Kudos to the governor and his team for this.
God bless Edo State,
God bless Nigeria

The artworks or artifacts are safe in the hand of the foreign countries.

We have no working security to safeguard or protect these products.

It was because these countries e.g Germany had an effective security system in place that is why their government was able to protect these artifacts and have it for return to the country of origin in this case Nigeria.

exactly my thought.

If the Edo state government want to make money from these restitution., they should demand that 25% of all revenue made on the day these artifacts were display on their museum should be remitted to the edo state government.

Stop making yourself a nano particle. Unity is strength.

Breaking yourself to minute particle will rather make you weak.

Follow the map and agitation to the end and make suggestions where you feel not comfortable for adjustment

If say na for Egypt then discover this bronze, them for don turn the sculpted man to a white man’s image.

Yeye dey smell.

Ancient Edo were descendants of the strong black men that built the Giza pyramids. But them no go talk truth.

Edo people would rather want a billion dollars than a statue that’s not useful to them.

Cos no brains.

I worked in the natural history museum as a ticketer in my youthful age, u should see the the amount of pounds rolling in.

Nigeria's problem is primarily lack of imagination

Spiritual minded people understands that this recent trend of European countries' decision to return these artifacts back has spiritual connotation.
