On behalf of myself and my family,
I extend my heartfelt congratulatory message to your
ROYAL MAJESTY EKPENEDE,
OVBIE ADIMILA, OBA N’OGIE EDO,
on your historic coronation as the Oba of Benin.
As subjects, we are very proud and privileged
to witness the milestone in our Great
Benin Kingdom. For me it is particularly
auspicious and most heartwarming that the event
is coming at a time when I am fortunate
to be elected Governor of Edo State.
On my part, I am committed to building
a better, prosperous and economically sustainable
Edo State based on cultural cohesion and ethical values.
Whilst counting on your wise counsel, I wish your Majesty
a peaceful reign and pray the Almighty grants you good
health and wisdom to rule the Kingdom.
Oba ghato kpere. Ise
