Oba of Benin blasts Edo State lawmakers

The Oba of Benin, His Royal Majesty, Oba Ewuare II, has in strong terms condemned the recent fracas at the Edo State House of Assembly during their change of leadership on Monday.

He described the incident as a display of “political hooliganism and barbarism.’’

 

The Oba, who said that he had watched with great disappointment the throwing of chairs and use of fisticuffs among members of the House of Assembly, noted that their action “does not portray them as honourable members” but was “a sign of desperation for power”.
