Suggestion By Al Og 

ERAN-EDO alas, No Borrowed language will ever be welcomed by Al Og now or in the future. Or else count me out of it.

"Many Benin and other Edo peoples hardly speak or understand the Edo dialect today! They are either prolific in pidgin English or trying to speak Yoruba language! Making movies to remind us of our glorious past is great but sustaining our values and language will be more importance. Encourage Edo people to marry from among themselves, speak and bear Edo names, learn our history from our perspectives and above all, extend a helping hand to the little guy to give him a sense of belonging........ Peace" - Livingstone Palmgrove
