Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, a leading PDP gubernatorial aspirant in Edo state has commiserated with the royal family, prominent chiefs and the entire people of Benin Kingdom over the passage of His Royal Majesty, OMO N’ OBA N’ EDO, UKU AKPOLOKPOLO, Oba Erediauwa CFR, The Oba of Benin, describing his reign as meritorious to the Kingdom.
”On behalf of myself and my family, I commiserate with the royal family and the entire people of the great Benin Kingdom on the passage of His Royal Majesty, OMO N’ OBA N’ EDO, UKU AKPOLOKPOLO, Oba Erediauwa CFR. This is a great loss to Benin Kingdom which boasts of an enviable history of unbroken continuity of great monarchs who left indelible imprint in history” he said.
He observed that Oba Erediuwa’s reign was characterized with peace and tranquility as his fatherly role united all his subjects.
According to him, during Oba Erediauwa’s reign, Benin culture flourished and witnessed remarkable growth with chiefs playing prominent role in preserving and jealously guiding the custom of the land.
Born in 1923, Oba Erediauwa is the 38th king of the great Benin kingdom whose reign Ize-Iyamu pointed out will go down in history as an epoch of renaissance as education and the propagation of the true values of life was vigorously pursued.
He was a top administrative personnel in his hay days in the Federal Civil Service with a sound legal mind prior to his ascendancy to the revered throne. His reign Ize-Iyamu stressed was worthy of emulation by his subjects especially the young who have come to realize that education and exposure are desirable.
“He will be remembered for his great wisdom reminiscent of that of King Solomon in the Holy Bible. While we observe the rites of passage of our reverred monarch, we are consoled by the rising of another Sun, the crown prince, in the horizon of Benin Kingdom”.
