Edo Govt Seeks Harmony in Royal Dispute, Dismisses Sensational Claims

The Edo State Government has responded to a recent public statement by lawyers representing the Benin Traditional Council.

These lawyers raised concerns about ongoing efforts to resolve a dispute involving the Council and several suspended Enigie (local chiefs) in the Edo South Senatorial District.

In an official statement by the State Commissioner for Communication & Orientation, Chris Osa Nehikhare, and made available to Truthlive news on Thursday, May 23, 2024, the Edo State Government reaffirmed its deep respect for His Royal Majesty, Omo N’Oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba Ewuare II, the Oba of Benin.

The government emphasized that it holds no issues with the Royal Father and is dedicated to resolving the misunderstandings within the Royal institution.

It then, urged the public to disregard any sensational statements being spread for political gain, emphasizing that these do not reflect the true nature of the issue at hand.

The statement reads: “The attention of the Edo State Government has been drawn to a public statement by lawyers reportedly acting on the instructions of the Benin Traditional Council, who raised issues relating to moves for the resolution of certain misunderstanding between the Council and some suspended Enigie in Edo South Senatorial District.

“Despite the seemingly unhelpful position of these lawyers in the matter at hand, we want to emphasize unequivocally that the State Government reverently respects and has no issues with our Royal father, His Royal Majesty, Omo N’Oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba Ewuare II, the Oba of Benin.

“The State Government is committed to the peaceful resolution of the misunderstandings within our Royal institution as expressed in the earlier public comments regarding this matter.

“The government will continue to explore the path of peace so as to resolve the misunderstandings and ensure the lingering court case is withdrawn and the matter is resolved amicably.

“We encourage Edo people and the public to disregard all sensational statements being propagated for selfish political purposes.”
