Obahiagbon Tributes at his best ''Oba a Royal Salamander''

Obahiagbon tributes to the late Oba of Benin, Omo N’ Oba Erediauwa

Hon Patrick Obahiagbon paid his tribute to the late Oba of Benin in one of his best speech. A must read for everyone.

He said: “You cannot gloss over the fact that Omo N’ Oba Erediauwa, Oba of Benin, was a man of impeccable and unimpeachable integrity with the resilience of a Royal salamander. In him you found a coruscating display of that apothegm which holds that noblesse oblige.

“This sui generis quintessential quality of his came under bold relief especially during the locust and philistine years of the military militocracy. He was practically the only triton among the minnows of Royal hierarchs that resisted and stood up to the military rascality and apacheism that characterized the Abacha era. He stood at all times with the people, eyeballing political and military demagogues and damning their treacherous hooey and blarneys. It won’t be erroneous and superfluous therefore to pontificate that his integrity was altruistically integrious if you permit me that neologism.

“Omo N’ Oba EREDIAUWA,Oba of Benin was a cornucopious emblematization of the rich heritage of the Benin culture both in his modus vivendi and modus operandi. He left no one in doubt that he was the spiritual and traditional agglutinating anodyne that offers a centripetal canopy for the Benin ethnic nationality into one harmonious and synchronized armada and of particular interest to me here was how he was able to bring this about especially against the backdrop of modernism and attenuating cum corrosive forces of religious petulancy and perfervidism.

“Its in his cosmopolitan and cerebral mien that is situated the Alladins lamp that gave him the enablement in striking a delicate equipoise and hence at a meeting of the ‘Benin Anglican Dioscesan Synod on June 3,1980,the revered monarch posited thus ….’The conflict between traditional religion and Christian religion is not supported by scriptural teaching. But must Christian religion condemn and push out the traditional? Must traditional worship and Christian worship not be seen as complimentary?’

Failure is what Nigeria's Proof Of Life Video teaches Us

Nigeria's Proof Of Life Video teaches Us

A video obtained by CNN International has sparked appears failure, tears, anger and hope in some corners of Nigeria. It is not a coincidence that CNN decides to publish the proof of life video on the eve of the two years anniversary of over 200 kidnapped Nigerian girls who were taken by Boko Haram from a school in the Nigeria’s northeastern region. It’s the first video evidence that 15 of the kidnapped girls may still be alive since their abduction from the town of Chibok.

“I am speaking on 25 December 2015, on behalf of all the Chibok girls and we are all well,” one of the girls says into the camera.

Boko Haram kidnapped 276 girls in April 2014, and the two-minute video claims to show 15 of those girls still alive. Someone close to the negotiations for their rescue handed the video to CNN, the broadcaster reported, and its digital marking reportedly dates it to last Christmas. The video shows the girls in two lines against beige-painted cement wall, their bodies covered entirely with black hijabs except for their faces. A voice off camera asks them their names, and from where they were taken.

The Nigerian government has failed thus far in its rescue effort. It is also true that the U.S and  international society has failed in its intelligence and rescue effort of the kidnapped girls.  Why the U.S intelligence withdrew its effort to locate the Nigerian girls remains a mystery. Nigeria’s Minister of Information,Lai Mohammed, told CNN the government had concerns the girls seemed too young, and that they’d not aged as much as expected, given their two years in captivity.

#BringBackOurGirls 2 Years of Failure: Nigerian Stolen Girls Still Missing

#BringBackOurGirls 2 Years of Failure
2 years after #BringBackOurGirls failure, Nigerian stolen girls are still no where to be found. On April 14, 2014, two years ago , terrorist group Boko Haram stormed the village of Chibok, kidnapping hundreds of girls, shooting residents and burning homes.

The latest fear is that these missing girls are now brainwashed to carry out suicide attacks in Nigeria. One of every five suicide bombings that the group has staged or inspired over the last two years has been executed by children, usually young girls. My 7-year-old child was among the children kidnapped,” a government official in a Maiduguri camp said in a phone interview. “The Boko Haram abductors struck nine days after I enrolled my child in the school.”
Nigerian Stolen Girls Still Missing
There has been no news despite rescue effort by the Nigerian government since 2014.

Two years after Chibok, 219 of the kidnapped girls are still missing, a small fraction of the thousands of women, girls and boys reported to have been abducted since. Amnesty International last month reported that Boko Haram in 2015 and 2016 had abducted at least 2,000 women alone. A UNICEF report released Tuesday said many of the missing children, some as young as 8, were forced to carry out “suicide” bombings.
