The Oba of Benin had refuted the reports that said he snubbed President Goodluck Jonathan and members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on their recent visit to his palace.
This was made in a statement signed by its secretary and issued on the authority of the traditional ruler, in Benin City, on Monday, describing the publications as mischievous.
The statement reads: “the palace would like to make it clear that the Omo N’Oba did not shun President Jonathan and the PDP members that came with him. “In fact, it is the respect and love Omo N’Oba has for the president that made him to still manage to see the president in a private chamber in the palace, despite a complicated situation that day.”
But we didn't say Oba snubbed the President oh. We said he snubbed the PDP delegates wey follow Jona come, and from the statement...we no talk lie. #lol
