I am greatly encourage seeing what you guys are doing. it makes me feel all hope is not lost for the Great Edo people of west Africa. You guys are heros and history will remember you. Every great end starts from a small begining. No battle no victory, No business no profit, no venture no success. Sometimes you don't know the extent of your greatness or how far your efforts and actions can go untill you try. We Africans are great people with great abilities. Benin, Edo people have led great nation, Kingdom and civilization before and are still going great in all areas of endevours accross the globe.
Was also trilled reading through the resolution of the meetings, presence of lovely brothers from Rivers and other ethnic groups accross the sub region. We can make Great Benin African civilization Great Again for our future generations to live and be proud of.
I commend once again the organisers and coordinator of this great Benin movement, cultural and historic reunion.

4). Our meeting shall be last Saturday of every month.
5). To re-orientate our people of our rich history.
6). We are not minority considering bringing all Idu children together.
7). A letter of request to His imperial Majesty, Oba of Benin, to give us a date to be celebrating our Benin national day annually.
