Oba Of Benin To Head Monarchs Of Oil-Producing States

The Oba of Benin, Oba Ewuare II, has been nominated as Chair­man of the Committee of Traditional Rulers of Oil Mineral Producing States (TROMPCOM) comprising Edo, Delta, Bayelsa, Rivers, Imo, Abia, Ondo, Akwa-Ibom and Cross River States.

The Patron of TROMP­COM and the Amayanabo of Brass in Bayelsa State, His Royal Highness, King Diete Spiff, announced this when he visited Oba Ewuare II in his Palace in Benin City.

He told the Benin mon­arch that the body was formed to address the prob­lems posed by oil exploration and gas-flaring in the com­munities to bring succour to the people, whose environ­ment have been devastated.

King Diete Spiff explained that the chairmanship of TROMPCON is rotated ev­ery two years, and that it is the turn of Edo State to head the body, hence he came to plead with the monarch to accept the offer.

The monarch said that if the people of the oil-produc­ing states are impacted on positively, unemployment and youth restiveness in the region would be reduced.

In his response, Oba Ewuare II thanked Diete Spiff for the invitation ex­tended to him to chair the body, adding that he had accepted to take the respon­sibility and prayed God and his ancestors to grant him the wisdom and good health to justify the confidence re­posed in him.

He however called for the utilisation of the abundant gas resources instead of flar­ing it to cause environmental and health hazards for the people.

The Benin monarch used the opportunity to welcome President Muhammadu Bu­hari back home and thank God for his quick recovery.

Oba Ewuare II told his guest that he would soon embark on nationwide thank you tour, beginning with a visit to President Buhari in Abuja, after which he will meet traditional rulers in the South-South and other parts of the country.

The Oba of Benin also re­ceived the Otaru of Igarra, His Royal Highness, Oba E. A. Saiki III, who was in the Palace to inform him about his 20th coronation anniversary slated for Oc­tober this year as well as the Aba Igarra Festival which is held every seven years.
