The odionwere subsequently urged all to take it off their mind that the festival is fetish but rather the Oba uses the occasion to offer prayers to God and ancestors for the protection, good health of the people, against all evil intentions away from the kingdom as well as for the continuous peace ,growth and development not only in Edo but the nation as a whole.

He posited that not matter the exposure, education and reach, the culture and tradition of the people should come first in all things, adding that the western world the new generations are trying to emulate have their own culture and tradition which they protect jealously. “Why not protect our own culture and tradition’, he stressed.

While pledging continuous loyalty to the Oba, the Odionwere used the occasion to congratulate the Royal father on the recent traditional royal naming ceremony of the quadruplet, adding that it will go down in the history of the great Benin Kingdom, he prayed God and ancestors to continue to guide and bestow him with the continous wisdom to pilot the affairs of the great kingdom to greater height.

He the use the occasion to call on those interested in acquiring properties for development to come to Azagba village, as the village is very peaceful and just about ten minutes drive from the city center.
