The community under the umbrella of Edo Forum made this position known when they paid a courtesy call on the state governor at the Government House at the weekend.
The leader of the delegation who is also the Esogban of Benin kingdom, Chief D.U. Edebiri said they were in Government House on behalf of the Oba of Benin Omo N’ Oba Erediauwa and the Benin people to express their pleasure and happiness at the way the governor has transformed the ancient city to a modern one.
He said, “We must put on record our appreciation of the various developmental projects that your government is undertaking in Edo state in general and Benin City in particular.”
While pledging the support of the Benin people to the aspirations of the governor the community promised to mobilize their people to vote for him against their own son Major General Charles Airhiavbere stressing that ‘’the worst form of ingratitude is gratitude that is unexpressed’’.
