Benin Monarch: Traditional Institutions will Support FG in Keeping Nigeria One

By Mohammed Aminu in Sokoto
The Oba of Benin, Oba Ewuare II, Monday said the traditional institutions will support the federal government in harnessing the benefits of cultural ethos to keep Nigeria as one indivisible country.
He also stated that the unity and peaceful coexistence of this country depend largely on traditional institutions because of their closeness to the people.
The monarch made the remark when he paid a courtesy visit to the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar II, in his palace in Sokoto.
According to the Oba, the role of traditional institutions in building a harmonious society cannot be overemphasised, as traditional rulers are the repository and custodians of cultural and traditional values.
He posited that Nigeria is a great country and has unlimited potential for growth and development and as such Nigerians must join hands to uphold its integrity and entrench those values that would engender unity.
