The House of Representatives has resolved to set up an ad hoc committee to resolve the crisis between the Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki and Oba of Benin, Ewuare II.

The resolution to set up the committee was reached on Tuesday following a motion of urgent public importance moved by Billy Osawaru and four others.

Moving the motion, Osawaru said there is a deliberate attempt to split the kingdom into smaller chiefdoms.

He stated that the Oba of Benin presides over the entire Benin South Senatorial District, adding that the Oba appoints chiefs to manage the affairs of the places.

“The Oba of Benin (with the support of Chiefs appointed by him) exercises his customary dominionship over the Benin Kingdom through the Benin Traditional Council, as the only competent traditional authority in Edo South Senatorial District,” he said.

He expressed worries that the move by the state government is an attempt to create a parallel customary council.

“Without any cause, the Government of Edo State has announced its intention to institute a “new regime” by creating new traditional councils in the said seven Local Government areas of Edo South Senatorial District.”

Consequently, the House resolved to set up an Ad Hoc Committee to interact with the Government of Edo State and the Benin Traditional Council with a view to resolving the conflict brought about by the plan of the State Government.

The House also mandated the ad hoc committee to also interact with the National Security Adviser (NSA), the Nigeria Police Force and all other Federal Government Security Forces in Edo State to sensitize them on the need to avert any violent breakdown of law and order in Edo South and Edo State as a whole, following the plan of the State Government.

The committee was directed to report back to the House not later than one month.

Now this is a man that intends to bite off more than he can chew, and the unfortunate thing there is that there is no one he listens to! Obaseki should better remember the story of boda Bode Thomas and let sleeping dogs lie! grin

While the Greedy Oba of Benin was busy wasting his unprecious time about claiming Lagos, Obaseki is busy strategizing on how to divide his tiny Edo kingdom into multiple Oba states.

Greediness is not good in this life. Ogiso of Benin would have learnt his lesson by now.

Now his current tiny Benin kingdom with landmass less than one local government in Oyo state will now be divided into multiple tiny kingdom will landmass size less than that of a voting ward.

Mike Adenuga should just buy the whole Benin palace so we can convert it to an Owambe arena.

Edo is not Lagos state even though the Oba said that Edo state give birth to Lagos state

But it's not only the Oba saying it, generational KINGS of Lagos itself are saying same thing. See below

Having said that, the Oba was not elected by anybody. He ought know he is totally subordinate to the gov.

You and your Oba of Benin are hardcore liars.

Below is Oba of Lagos rebuking your Oba and his kind. He never made that statement as in that same video, he specifically said that “Lagos was not found by Benin”.

You can say he gave the rebuttal in Dec the same year 2017.

It happened in Kano, Gaduje removed the Emir and split up the Emirates, it just happened in Ibadan, Seyi Makinde regraded and appointed new Kings in Ibadan Land spanning over four Local Government.
If Obaseki wants to do it, nothing will happen. Government pass any King in Nigeria. Las las, Obaseki will depose the King if Governor thinks that's necessary

In so much that the Oba have been over reaching his bounds socio-politically, governor Obaseki should tred with extreme caution with any attempt to divide the reignship of the Benin kingdom.

Of course he never said Benin owned Lagos (see what he said below)
Besides, he was only talking again just to pacify some people who couldn't bear being told the truth. He already told his truth, and told it in detail!

So if Lagos does not belong to Yoruba, who does it belong to?

Kanuri people or aliens?

Lagos actually belong to the Kanuri people. Their Borno Monarch conquered it in the year 1659.

I think they conquered Lagos and lined up the city using the head of the former Oba of Benin.

So you are right.

Yes, the Benin Oba is the head of the animals ruling over it before that the Kanuri stole it from him.

I heard the Oba fled with his tail between his leg back then which explains why no Benin man can point to their ancestral home in Lagos.

Imagine finding a mega city like Lagos but yet no one can trace Oba of Benin palace or ancestral home or any Benin person for that matter.

It’s so sad that the Ogiso of Benin had to go on an excursion while they show him round Yoruba museum in a city his ancestor said they found.

Insulting anyone just because of how you feel is a symptom of failed parenting and a childhood of trauma.

Your life must be really terrible to start with. You need therapy to fix the chronic trauma in your life.

No wonder the Ooni called Bini Ife land.

The Ogiso were usurped by the Yoruba man called Oranmiyan from Ife.

Oranmiyan ended the Ogiso dynasty, became the first king and left his son Eweka as the 2nd king of Bini. Even the current oba of benin made mention of that at his coronation.

Eriggs:

The governor can remove the oba. The Governor presents staff of office to Oba and can also withdraw same. Obas are now ceremonial i.e. relics of the past. Fmr Gov. Ganduje removed the Emir of Kano (Sanusi) and heaven did not fall. Fmr Gov. Mimiko also removed the Deji of Akure (Adepoju).

Even the colonial masters arrested Oba Ovonramwen, the great grandfather of the current oba of benin. They put him in handcuffs and legcuffs, took pictures of him for exhibition, then sent him on exile to Calabar where he eventually died without ever stepping foot again on Benin. After God, na government.

After every, Oba Ovonramwen grandson named Oba Akenzua II still bowed to young Queen Elizabeth. Same same authority that imprisoned his grandad.

Chief Awolowo is at the left of Oba Akenzua II. Back then, Benin and Delta were part of the Western region. One of Awolowo's election campaign for the leadership of the 1st republic was for the Midwest to be created and to stand alone which eventually became a reality.

Is the greedy Oba of Benin your father?

Check the comment I replied to and ask the guy those who he referred to as “animals” in his post.

If you can’t reprimand the guy, why are you wasting your unprecious time trying to engage me?

Imagine a Benin person telling a Yoruba person that he lack parenting. No be prostitution and human trafficking una elders dey do for that your tiny city?
