Obiano condoles Edo kingdom, Adams over Oba Erediauwa demise

The Executive Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano has condoled the people of Edo Kingdom and Governor of Edo State, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole on the passage of the Oba of Benin, the Omo n’Oba n’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba Erediauwa, who joined his ancestors recently, reports ITRealms.

A press statement made available to ITRealms by the Senior Special Assistant on Media, Mr. James Eze, quoted Governor Obiano as describing Oba Erediauwa’s passage as a huge loss to Nigeria.

Governor Obiano who described the late monarch as “the last of the titans” further observed that while he lived, Oba Erediauwa stood out as a bridge builder whose influence spread across the country and beyond.

“Oba Erediauwa was always fully aware of his great place in history and never failed to rise to the occasion. He carried the weight of his office well and lent depth to the much desecrated traditional institution. He was oracular in his ways and commanded respect from afar. Oba Erediauwa will be sorely missed for his urbanity, scholarship and cultural rootedness,” Governor Obiano observed.

The Governor enjoined the people of Edo State to take heart because the late Oba led a life of meaning and left a huge legacy for the country; leaving a trail of excellence that would inspire generations after him.

“My thoughts and the prayers of Ndi Anambra are with the late monarch’s family and the government and people of Edo State in this moment of grief. We pray that Almighty God will grant Oba Erediauwa a peaceful repose and his survivors the fortitude to bear the loss,” he said.
