Edo Heritage: Sign Post To Our Future

Edo Heritage: Sign Post To Our Future



By VICTOR OSAREREN

Benin is an ancient civilization that earned recognition and respect throughout the world over 500 years ago. It is interesting to note that Benin was named Great Benin by European visitors and writers before Britain was named Great Britain. They also gave the appellation ‘City” to Benin. Only few places in the world bear the name city.



Benin City, the capital of Great Benin Kingdom and Empire and the ancestral home… Continue

EDO NAMING CEREMONY

EDO NAMING CEREMONY

BY

Nowamagbe Austin OMOIGUI, MD



Naming Ceremony



Among Edos, the traditional naming ceremony is usually performed on the seventh day after birth. Before 10 am, family elders and very close friends gather to pray to God for long life, good health and prosperity for the child... and its parents. The elders present the family name to the father of the baby. Oracular consultations and divination may precede this phase.



Later on in the evening,… Continue

EDE N'ERHENA VBE EDO

"

These anti-Edo political organizations you folks went to join are the most anti-African - and Africans - in the world.

They're worse than anything; we obviously can't stop you though, even Ewuare II's manifest destiny lies in our own regional party.

We have egba Omo Oduduwa and so on, NPC, AG, the forerunner of them all NCNC and then now these cancers of today.

Stay "with them", but register for your most important election first: your local election, register Edo Political Front, and if you don't, vote the front.

No self respecting Edo will - in the future - find themselves the flag bearers and cheerleaders of foreign parties with indirect rule political and economic mandates, it just doesn't work.

No sane Edo person lives to "have the ear" of someone who doesn't have Edo at their heart.

The Supreme Court is the place to remove the frustration of these lethargic and "periodic" additions to the voting rolls; here - where I live - you can fill in the forms regarding changing your voter registration at the post office and other easy access places.

At the rate things are going we're going to find ourselves truly in decline as our populations suffer from simple things like protein deficiencies in children
