A prominent chieftain of the Labour Party, Comrade Kingsley Ijebor, has congratulated His Royal Majesty, Omo N’ Oba N’ Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba Ewuare II, the Oba of Benin, on his 7th coronation anniversary.
The former Esan Central Local Government Labour Party Chairmanship candidate said the foremost traditional ruler has been making very significant impact in the development of Edo land in particular and Nigeria in general since his ascension to the throne.
Comrade Kingsley Ijebor, in a statement he personally signed, hailed the Benin Monarch for using his position to promote peace among the various ethnic nationalities in the country as well as working with relevant stakeholders and institutions to advance the socio-economic development of the people.
Describing the great Oba Ewuare II as a vibrant, visionary and progressive monarch, the labour party chieftain noted that the Oba has always been in the forefront of the quest for a just society where there is justice, equity and fairness.
Comrade Kingsley Ijebor who described the Benin Monarch as a ” Peace Ambassador” and a ” Bridge Builder”, said the royal father has always lent his voice to the unity and indivisibility of the Nigerian federation and his counsel has always helped to calm frayed nerves at critical points in the country.
He said the Oba of Benin has used his God-given wisdom, diplomacy, tact and humility to contribute to the peaceful resolution of some knotty issues in the country to the admiration of all.
Comrade Kingsley Ijebor also commended the Oba for his interest in the youths, especially in the area of project sponsorship and provision of platforms for them to showcase their God-given talent, a development that has taken many youths off the streets and given them the opportunity to positively contribute to nation-building.
He asked God to grant the Oba of Benin long life, good health and a peaceful and purposeful reign to continue to contribute meaningfully to national development, unity and harmony in the country.
“On behalf of my wife, my business associate and good people of Esan Central Local Government Area of Edo State, I congratulate our amiable royal father, His Royal Majesty Omo N’Oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba Ewuare II, Oba of Benin, and pray that peace, progress and prosperity continue to be the hallmark of his reign” The labour party chieftain added.
