“You’re the instigator, you cannot broker peace”, Campaign organization tells Obaseki”

The Senator Monday Okpebholo Campaign Organization has advised Governor Godwin Obaseki to allow the revered Oba of Benin to breathe and stop pretending to be brokering peace when in reality, he’s the “chief instigator” of the crisis. In a statement on Thursday reacting to Governor Obaseki’s visit to some chiefs pretending to be a peacemaker, the campaign organization said, “it’s better for the governor to focus on marketing his failed government and his ‘godson’ candidate, Mr. Asue Ighodalo to Edo people than blowing hot and cold”.

The statement signed by the Director of Media and Publicity, Mr. John Mayaki, said, “Godwin Obaseki lacks the authority, as it’s another abomination to Benin traditions and culture, to want to broker peace or settle our revered King with his subjects or suspended Enigies. “What Governor Godwin Obaseki is saying or claiming he wants to do is comparable to a living creature (Man) saying he wants to broker peace between Almighty God with a creature of God who is a sinner. “We are therefore not surprised, as Governor Godwin Obaseki has continued to show his lack of proper understanding of Benin traditions and Customs.

This, he has displayed severally over his almost eight years of misrule in Edo state. “A few examples of Governor Godwin Obaseki’s lack of understanding of Benin traditional history and culture are the issue of the stolen artifacts from the palace of the Oba of Benin and the genuine cry of the true Benin man for them to be returned to the palace of the Oba of Benin and warehouse at the Benin Royal Museum rather than Obaseki Lagos boys EMOWAA Museum.

The current case between the Benin Traditional Council (BTC) and Edo State Government over Governor Godwin Obaseki’s desire to challenge the authority of the revered Oba of Benin by his intention of creating alternate traditional rulers in every local government in Edo South against the laws and traditions of the Benin people is another issue he cannot wriggle himself out.

We wish to praise our revered Oba of Benin for his usual fatherly role, candour and disposition so far even in the face of Governor Godwin Obaseki’s continued provocation with his actions and policies against the Oba and Benin Traditional Council. “We also thank every true Benin son and daughter both home and in the Diaspora that has stood to defend our revered Oba and king as well as our cultural heritage against the intentions of Governor Obaseki.

“We call on Edo people to reject Governor Godwin Obaseki’s PDP and his “godson” Asuen Ighodaro who have since vowed in a public statement to continue with all the policies of his godfather, Governor Godwin Obaseki in the upcoming September 21 Edo Governorship elections”.
