Tinubu Vows to Safeguard Benin Artefacts, pledges Support for Oba’s Majestic Museum

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu Promises to Protect Returned Benin Artefacts

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has made a commitment to safeguard the Benin artefacts that have been returned to Nigeria from various locations around the world. The President made this pledge while receiving the Oba of Benin, Omo N’Oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo Ewuare II, along with other traditional leaders from Edo State.

During the meeting, President Tinubu assured the Benin Royal Council of his administration’s support in establishing a museum specifically dedicated to housing the artefacts. He commended the efforts made by the Benin monarch to retrieve the stolen treasures and expressed his delight in having them back.

“It deserves our protection. We are glad to have them back, and we are glad you are happy. They are in protective custody. It is a matter of history, over a hundred years. We will work on the museum,” he stated.

The President also shared his administration’s commitment to conducting an audit of infrastructure projects, mentioning the consideration of roads in Edo State as requested by the Oba Ewuare II.

“We’ve predicted that you would hit the ground running and you have done so, even faster than we thought,”

In response, Oba Ewuare II commended President Tinubu’s accomplishments within the first few weeks of his tenure. He expressed his belief that the President’s actions have ignited hope in Nigerians and set the country on a positive path towards progress and development.

The Benin monarch also took the opportunity to appeal to President Tinubu for assistance in ensuring that the returned artefacts are properly protected and do not fall into the wrong hands.

Lastly, Oba Ewuare II expressed his gratitude to the Federal Government for appointing him as the Pro-Chancellor of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN).
