EDSG withdraws letter earlier issued on Oba of Benin

Edo State Government has withdrawn a letter earlier issued on the Oba of Benin, saying it was issued in error.

In a retraction signed by the Secretary to State Government, Professor Julius Ihonvbere, the government said in deference to the revered age-long tradition and respect for the sensibilities of the people of the great Benin Kingdom, the Government of Edo State hereby withdraws a letter issued on twenty-forth May 2016 entitled: Appointment of His Royal Highness Edaiken N’Uselu, Crown Prince Eheneden Erediauwa as the Oba of Benin.

He said the said letter was issued in error as the rites of passage of His Royal Majesty, Omo N’Oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba of Benin are still on.

Professor Ihonvbere said the Government will, in due course, issue a fresh letter on the installation of the Edaiken N’Uselu, His Royal Highness, Crown Prince Eheneden Erediauwa as the Oba of Benin, in line with the age-long succession tradition of the Benin Kingdom and in line with relevant sections of the Traditional Rulers and Chiefs Law, 1979 as amended and by virtue of all other laws enabling it in that behalf, after all necessary traditional rites are concluded.
