Nigerians frown as APC Chaiman, Oyegun says – Oba of Benin is Unique like Buhari

When visuals of His Royal Majesty, Omo N, ‘Oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolor, Oba Ewuare II- Oba of Benin landing at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport yesterday hit the media, Nigerians were skeptical as to the nature of the visit but the comments of APC Chairman, Chief Odigie Oyegun seems to be the basis for controversy at the moment as some Nigerians picked offence by his comparism, criticizing the APC for trying to credit Buhari at every given opportunity.

Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Odigie Oyegun who doubles as a past Governor of Edo state was among the Benin faithfuls who welcomed the Oba at the airport.

In his remarks to the press, he said:

“The Oba’s visit is bringing peace, hope to the country and change in the nation.

“Everybody is here as you can see. We came to give him a rosy welcome. It is an historic occurrence, our new Oba, a unique Oba with a unique culture.

“We also have a unique president in the person of Muhammadu Buhari with a unique way of doing things. A lot of good things will come out of this visit.”

The comparism on uniqueness seems not to have gone well with many Nigerians who have stormed social media top register their grievances.
