Bisi Olaniyi, Benin
THE Benin Nationwide Congress (BNC) has opposed a deliberate protest in opposition to Capt. Hosa Okunbo, by a gaggle loyal to Governor Godwin Obaseki, over the philanthropist’s perceived help for the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu.
BNC, on Monday at a information convention in Benin, by way of its President, Mr. Aiyamenkhue Edokpolo, stated the deliberate protest to the properties of Benin leaders would finish on the palace of the Oba of Benin, Ewuare II, including that it will maintain any second from now to embarrass billionaire industrialist Okunbo.
The convention had as its theme: ‘In defence of Benin patriotism: Keep away from Benin youths and our territory in your unholy marketing campaign of calumny in opposition to exemplary Benin patriot.’
BNC stated: “With regards to a mischievously-packaged orchestra, aimed toward tarnishing the towering picture of certainly one of Benin’s distinguished sons, Capt. Okunbo, a multinational enterprise mogul, by well-known entrepreneurs of violence and apostles of stone-age politics in Edo State, it’s incumbent on us, as ambassadors of Benin’s peace and hospitality values, to warn the anachronistic parts to desist forthwith from their carefully-planned mission.”
