The Edo State governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has said the relationship between the state government and the Benin Monarch, Omo N’Oba N’Edo, Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba Ewuare II, in the last one year, has improved quality of life in the state.

Obaseki disclosed this on Friday, at a Gala Night to mark one-year coronation anniversary of Oba Ewuare II in Benin.

The governor described his working relationship with the monarch in the one year he has reigned as inspirational and unique, noting that the cordial relationship has been instrumental to the successes recorded by his government within the period.


Obaseki said the collaboration has helped the government in addressing some of the concerns raised in His Majesty’s coronation speech last year, which resulted in the state government’s new law, which outlawed activities of Community Development Associations (CDAs), as well as the development of the Gelegele Seaport.

On his part, Oba Ewuare II urged traditional institutions to partner with government for the good of society, declaring that he will soon embark on national and international tours, and hopes to use the opportunity to build stronger ties that will benefit Edo.
