Oba of Benin: NOCSON[Civil Societies] commiserate with Bini royal family- PRESS RELEASE

On behalf of the leadership and membership of Network of Civil Society Organizations of Nigeria (NOCSON), humbly and ably  led by Abraham Oviawe,  Esq, we commiserate with the Royal Family, Benin Traditional Council and the entire people of  Benin Kingdom over the demise of a Philosopher King, The Great Oba of Benin Kingdom, His Royal majesty, Omon n ‘oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba Erediauwa CFR  after a glorious 36 years on the throne.

Though  His Royal Majesty has  gone to join his  ancestors, he is still alive today  because the legacies he imprinted  on the sands of history are there to always guide his subjects.

The great monarch was a Father of multitude, a man who believed so much in the the solomonic philosophy of justice, equity and good conscience when pronouncing  judgments on matters that were brought before his  royal table.

His reign as the 38th Oba of Benin Kingdom elevated the land of Igodomigodo  to the pedestal of peace, concord and tranquility, as his solomonic role united his subjects  as members of one large family.

The great monarch will be remembered ad infinitum for his positive contributions to  humanity and  as one of the most outstanding traditional rulers of his era. We pray the Almighty God grant  Crown Prince Erediauwa the solomonic  wisdom and courage he requires  to build on the laudable legacies of Oba Erediauwa.

May his  soul continue to rest in perfect peace.
