The founding Director General of PDP Governors Forum, Earl Osaro Onaiwu has commended the Oba of Benin, His Royal Majesty (HRM), Omo N’ Oba N’ Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba Ewuare II, for this forthrightness and frankness.
Reacting to some emerging facts from the Oba’s meeting with major political gladiators in the state, Onaiwu said the Oba has done well as an upright and unbiased father who is worthy of the royal throne bequeathed to him by his ancestors.
He noted that Oba Ewuare’s call for peace in the imminent Edo State governorship election and his unbiased condemnation of ensuing political violence and its proponents is a testament to the king’s nobility and love for his people.
In a related development, Onaiwu called on security agencies to continue to beam their searchlight on former National of APC, Adams Oshiomhole and Mr. Osagie Ize-Iyamu who is the guber candidate of the APC.
He asserted that the duo have a well documented track record of violence trailing them, hence it would not be out of place to keep them on a security watchlist.
He further alluded that both men, along with an assumed sponsor, Capt. Hosa Okunbo do not appear to have shown remorse even after the charge of the Oba of Benin for a peaceful election. He called for serious cautioning of these men.
Onaiwu stated that they are known aggressors who would not take a quarter of the harassment they’ve meted on Governor Godwin Obaseki at the palace. He wondered how brutish they would have been wielding power if they were the ones in office presently.
