President Buhari has visited the Benin monarch, Oba Ewuare the second, at his palace, after arriving Benin City, the Edo state capital today, Nov. 7th, 2016, for a two-day working visit.
According to reports, this would mark the President’s first visit to the monarch’s palace since his coronation as the Oba of Benin kingdom on October 20, 2016. Oba Ewurare has however, upon the president’s arrival, appealed to him to create a sea port in the state…
From the palace, the president is expected to proceed to commission some key projects carried out by the state governor, Adams Oshiomhole. The projects include; the newly constructed central hospital, the siluko road as well as the gully erosion reclamation project, at the Queen Ede Agbor road, and the New Era Secondary School now renamed Samuel Ogbemudia Secondary School.
This development is reported to be coming shortly after the valedictory session held for the out-going Governor of Edo state, Adams Oshiomhole. It is the last time Mr Oshiomhole will be hosting President Buhari in that capacity as Governor of Edo state.
