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.
