These are certainly great times in the lineage of Benin royal family and the entire kingdom, as His Royal Majesty, Omo N’Oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba Ewuare II, Oba of Benin, has just welcomed a new born baby to the royal family.
The Iyase of Benin Kingdom, Sam Igbe, revealed this on Monday in a statement which read: “By the grace of the Almighty God and the benevolence of our ancestors, the Benin Traditional Council on behalf of His Royal Majesty, Omo N’Oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba Ewuare II, Oba of Benin and the Royal Palace of Benin Kingdom, joyfully wish to announce that Her Royal Highness, Queen Iyayota of Benin Kingdom has been delivered of a bouncing baby boy.
“The infant Prince and his mother are in excellent health and good spirits. His Royal Majesty prayed for his newborn child to grow in good health and should also be blessed greatly.”
Oba of Benin, Ewuare II, has been a source of inspiration given his remarkable strides since ascending the throne of his forebears some four years ago notwithstanding the current harsh socio-economic conditions in the land. His performances have been life touching and as such, has had an outstanding journey so far.
