HON. SAMSON R. OSAGIE A Legal Enigma as Legislator per Excellence Rt. Hon. Samson Rapheal Osagie is a Lawyer and political enigma, having built his life around the tenets of hard-work, dedication and focus. Despite his well-deserved achievements in life, this amicable gentleman still maintains a high degree of level-headedness as a true servant of the people. Representing orhionmwon/Uhunmwode Federal Constituency of Edo State, this young man exudes an aura of humility and love for others. Born November 11, 1967, Hon. Osagie caught the vision of liberating others from poverty by first liberating himself through quality education. The journey began at Aguebor Primary School, Egba between 1973 and 1979 before proceeding to Egba Grammar School, Egba in 1980. He crowned this lap to his early education with an excellent West African School Certificate in 1985. Not done, between 1985 and 1987 Hon. Osagie moved to the famous Edo College, Benin City to acquire his Higher School Certificate (HSC). That feat quickly ...
19 Year Old Boy arrested for ‘sleeping with dog’ The unimaginable happened at Iguosa, a suburb in Benin City, located in Ovia North- East Local Government Area of Edo State, when a 19-year old boy (name not mentioned), was arrested for allegedly sleeping with a dog.

Oshiomhole inaugurates four Boards Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State today in Benin City inaugurated four Boards with a charge on them to collaborate with Management of the agencies for optimum result. Inaugurating the Waste Management Board, Technical and Vocational Education Board, Tourism Board and Environmental Committee, Governor Oshiomhole said “I expect that you will interact very closely with Management because the role of the Board is very different from the role of the Management. Management has responsibilities for day-to-day running under the guidelines that are formulated by the Boards. In some cases, there are some enabling laws that set up these bodies and of course, whatever you want to do must be done in conformity with the provisions of the law”, he said. Oshiomhole added, “The Management are professionals who have responsibilities, who have special skills and knowledge to manage and to ensure that the organization achieve its objectives.

Edo guber ticket as political carrot I COULDN’T contain my laughter as I watched an interview session on a local television station in Benin City, where a man said he was promised the ticket to become the next governor of Edo State. The man, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, one-time Secretary to the Government of Mr. Lucky Igbinedion and major contributor to the failure of that government was guest of the local television station and he gave reasons why he dumped his former party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the rival Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Ize-Iyamu’s decamping to the PDP and his reasons for so doing were clear manifestations of political jobber who can’t be entrusted with a serious assignment that requires integrity. Going through my records recently, I stumbled on a paper delivered, just last year, at the anniversary of Edo Political Forum in Benin City by Ize-Iyamu. In the said paper entitled “Political Governance in Edo State: 1999 – till date” he admitted his failure and the ...
Oshiomhole accuses PDP of inducing Edo lawmakers Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State has accused the Peoples Democratic Party of inducing Members of the State House of Assembly to defect from the All Progressive Party with the intent to create confusion and chaos in the state. Oshiomhole disclosed this today when he received a group of youths under the aegis of Initiative for Youth Awareness, Migration, Immigration, Development and Integration on solidarity visit to the Government at the Government House, Benin City. The Governor said, “I read through the newspaper that some of them are planning through corrupt means to change the popular mandate that was conferred on me by the good people of this state including your good selves. History will have it that for the first time, across Edo South, Edo Central and Edo North, in all the Local Governments and in all the wards, everybody voted overwhelmingly for my person “Now they have brought a lot of money from Abuja, paying Assembly members whom we cam ...

In summary, he said "The devil doesn't do anything without a plan, his ultimate goal is to ensure that you do not fulfil your God's ordained purpose" An alter call was made and prayers offered for the redemption of sin and restoration of purity in the lives of Royal Ambassadors in Edo State.

INSURANCE WIN FA CUP! Bendel Insurance have won the 2014 Edo State FA Cup by defeating defending champions and amateur division one side, Dynamite FC, by a lone goal. It was a tensed affair in a very balanced game yesterday evening at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin City as both sides showed the caution associated with final matches. It took a second half penalty, converted by Charles Omokaro for the veteran Insurance side managed by former Super Eagles coach Augustine Eguavoen to claim victory. The penalty had been awarded when Dynamite’s goalkeeper upended an onrushing Insurance attacker inside his 18-yard box. Dynamite were enterprising in the midfield, and their striker, Priestley Irogue, who was the highest goal scorer in the competition last year, worked extremely hard to create openings in Insurance half, but it was not to be their day. One of the talking points of the encounter was the appearance of the Dynamite FC Chairman, Bernard on his team’s bench, rather than in the VIP stands. Ber ...

Oba Erediauwa Seals ‘Oguedion’ BENIN CITY- The Benin Monarch, His Royal Majesty, Oba Erediauwa has sealed the traditional shrine (Oguedion) in Ughoton Community, Ovia North East Local Government Area of Edo State. A statement signed by the information officer, Benin Traditional Council, Robinson Osayamwen said the suspension is sequel to the anti- palace activities embarked upon by the Community Head (Odionwere) and his loyalists in the community. The statement quoted Chief Jonathan Idada Erhimwinoghae who led other palace chiefs to effect the sealing of the shrine as saying that the Odionwere refused to honour the palace invitation over a misunderstanding, with the Ohen-Okun of Ughoton community, chief Victor Aigbovbiosa. The misunderstanding arose following a tussle over who is the traditional and administrative Head of Ughoton community. Consequently, the statement indicated that the Oba has appointed the next in hierarchy to the Odionwere, (Ozukpogieva), and the Head of the middle age- group (Okai ...

Against cynicism in certain quarters that on-going projects may not be completed in the three senatorial district of Edo State, Governor Adams Oshiomhole recently rose to the challenge when he re-awarded the contract for the construction of the Central Hospital Complex along Sapele Road, Benin City, with an assurance that the multi-million naira edifice will be completed in nine months. Besides, Oshiomhole also took a tour of the N30 billion-erosion control water storm project with a charge on residents not to turn erosion control channel into a refuse dump, even as he expressed satisfaction with the contracting firm for speedy pace of work. It would be recalled that shortly after the July 2012 Governorship Election, on-going projects in the state almost came to a halt, fuelling speculations and allegation from the opposition camp that the state fund was expended in prosecuting the governor’s electioneering campaign. An allegation the State Government had repeatedly refuted. The flag-off of the ultra-mo ...
outside the studios of Vibes 97.3 fm Benin city Edo State.
Benin City is located in the Edo State of the Africa country, Nigeria. It is thought that the population of Benin City is approximately 1.5 million. In the past, Benin City was once a center for African slaves to be bought and sold, primarily once the Portuguese and Dutch markets. Benin City's history is also tarred with the memory of the "Punitive Expedition" of 1897, in which a group of over 1,000 Britons and other Europeans arrived in the city and burned down buildings, destroyed property and raped, tortured and killed many of the inhabitants. However, nowadays Benin City is the center of Nigeria's trade in the palm oil and rubber industries. The city is also a center for Higher Education, with a number of universities and similar institute of Higher Education for students to choose from.
Edo PDP Tackle State Government Over Hospital Project There has been a dispute brewing between the People’s Democratic Party and the All Progressives Congress Government in Edo State over the decision by the State Government to re- award the construction of a building at the Central Hospital in Benin City. Part of the hospital had collapsed in 2013 killing one and injuring many. The PDP is accusing the State Government of not implementing the recommendations of the panel set up to investigate the accident. The Central Hospital project was awarded in 2007 to a South-African construction company, SA International, but while construction was going on, 3 floors in the building caved in, killing the site manager with some other workers sustaining varying degrees of injury. This prompted the State Government to set up a panel to investigate the cause of the incident. Part of the recommendation was that the entire building should be demolished, having failed credibility tests. While the recommendations were y ...

WHY BUILDINGS COLLAPSE IN NIGERIA.A MUST READ FOR THE PROSPECTIVE AND EXISTING PROPERTY OWNER Buildings, like all structures, are designed to support certain loads without deforming excessively. The loads are the weights of people and objects, the weight of rain and the pressure of wind--called live loads--and the dead load of the building itself. Any type of building can collapse but multi storey buildings are more prone to catastrophic collapse. Recently in Benin City, Edo State, a section of the multi-billion naira ultramodern Central Hospital building where construction work was still ongoing collapsed. According to The Nigerian Tribune, the collapsed portion was a section of the third floor of a three-storey wing of the building.

The drone, as big as a traveling bag, was controlled by a hand held device as it flew through the sky and landed as directed. Against this backdrop, operatives of Edo State Traffic Management Agency [EDTMA] held the boy. For performing such feat, Aghogho was raised shoulder high by the elated crowd after the drone landed as directed. In a brief interview, Aghogho said he is 20 years old and has never been to any school. He said he built the drone from a personal research at home. "I am from Delta State.

HINT 5 , EDO STATE. The Mid-Western Region was a division of Nigeria from 1963 to 1991, from 1976 being known as the Bendel State. It was formed in June 1963 from Benin and Delta provinces of the Western Region, and its capital was Benin City. It was renamed a province in 1966, and in 1967 when the other provinces were split up into several states, it remained territorially intact, becoming a state. During the Nigerian Civil War, the Biafran forces invaded the new Mid-Western state, en route to Lagos, in an attempt to force a quick end to the war. While under Biafran occupation, the state was declared as the "Republic of Benin" as Nigerian forces were to retake the region. The republic collapsed a day after the declaration as Nigerian troops overtook Benin City. In 1976 it lost Ughelli to the new Rivers State and was renamed Bendel. Edo State was formed on August 27, 1991 when Bendel State was split into Edo and Delta States.

Vanguard Retired general faults court ruling on appointment of Service Chiefs on July 08, 2013 at 12:50 am in News By SIMON EBEGBULEM BENIN CITY — FORMER Provost Marshal of the Nigeria Army, Brig.Gen.Idada Ikponmwen, weekend, said that the recent declaration by the court to the effect that the President cannot appoint his Service Chiefs without the confirmation of the Senate was dangerous for the country. He said the court declaration will inevitably lead to negation of discipline, coherence in command and control of the Armed Forces, which are predicated upon the existence of a unified command. Idada, who spoke to Vanguard in Benin City, Edo State, pointed out that a major reason for the collapse of the First Republic was the absence of a powerful and “clearly discernible leader and this phenomenon accounted for the choice of a Presidential system that led to the emergence of a powerful leader capable of moving a nation forward aside the constraints of collective responsibility in the Parliamentary s ...

Edo Catholics accuse Bishop of Igbo agenda FEW weeks after a group of Catholic faithful in Igboland staged street protests against the appointment of a Bishop from a different sub-ethnic clan, a similar crisis erupted in Benin City, Edo State at the weekend. This time, some Edo Catholic members are accusing a Bishop of executing alleged plots to marginalise them in favour of Igbo members. Acting under the umbrella of Edo Liturgical Group, the fresh crisis is against the leadership of the Catholic Archdiocese in Benin City. Members of the group, at a press conference held in Benin, accused the Archbishop of the Benin Metropolitan See, Most Reverend Dr. Augustine O. Akubueze of plotting to replace Catholic priests and the laity of Benin origin with Igbo faithful. The protesters, led by Andrew I. Ayemwenre (chairman), Dr. Michael I. Asuen (Secretary) and Vincent Osakue (President) demanded among others; the removal of Archbishop Akubueze from Benin. They also want a Benin priest to be made a bishop and Archb ...

The Governor, who announced the ban to newsmen on Tuesday afternoon after the weekly security meeting, said the ban is limited to the three Local Government Areas which make up Benin City including Ikpoba Okha, Oredo and Egor Local Government Areas. Governor Oshiomhole said it is now increasingly evident that many of the kidnappers in the state are Okada riders. He said that the state has become a haven for criminals and other Okada riders who migrated to Edo State following similar ban in other states. The Governor appealed to the Okada riders to bear with the government as they were compelled to make this decision. The Governor also said that the security agencies have resolved to commence random checks of the private security personnel employed by residents in the state to determine if they are Nigerians and have valid papers to reside here as it has been discovered that they have largely been the informants in cases of kidnapping. He advised residents of the state to properly scrutinize those they emp ...

BREAKING NEWS : Okada riders demonstrate at Airport Road and some other places in Benin City, due to the ban placed on the use of Okada at a means of transport in Egor, Ikpoba Oka and Oredo Local govt areas, which takes effect on Monday, the 17th day of June, 2013. Oshiomhole - the Comrade Governor promised these riders that he wouldn't ban them for any reason whatsoever on the 6th of March, 2012 during his electioneering campaigns. What a shame! COMMENTARY It's sad to note this ugly truth, when election votes are being sought for in general elections they say "We the people...", but whenever selfish, one-sided and unstable policies are promulgated, they say "We the government...". You cannot get a government truly for the people without God in it. A people-ran government for the people, by the people and with the people - without God - cannot deliver the utopia to man. The political actors - at their best - would only be "well-meaning liars and thieves". God is a Kingdom Spirit, in His government, He mak ...
Dear friends, everything considered, we have resolved as a government, effective from Monday the 17th of June 2013, bike riders will not be allowed to operate in any part of Oredo, Ikpoba Okha and Egor Local Government Areas of Edo State. These three Local Governments constitute the heart of Benin City. The law enforcement agencies have been informed accordingly and directed to strictly enforce this law. There are confirmed cases of Okada riders who have been involved in kidnapping and other forms of violent crimes including robbery. We have tried as a government over the years to take steps to counsel Okada riders to observe certain codes, to watch out and ensure that criminals do not infiltrate their ranks and hide under commercial vehicles to perpetrate crime. It is clear to me now that we have not been particularly successful in this regard. More and more Okada riders have been found to be involved in various acts of violent crimes. Also, more than eighty percent of accident victims in the hospitals a ...

In 1989, he teamed up with other progressive students to mount a strident opposition to the Structural Adjustment Programme and other pro-imperialist policies of the Ibrahim Babangida junta. Not unexpectedly, the school authorities were not comfortable with his radical posture. Along with other student activists he was expelled from the university. Impressed with the unalloyed commitment of the dismissed students to the task of nation building I had no hesitation in accepting the brief to mount a legal challenge over the expulsion and the denial of their Nati ...
It is no longer news that Benin City is one of the richest in cultural heritage all over the world. Most of these cultures were preserved till date of which the National Museum plays a very prominent role. The location of the National Museum Benin City is at the heart beat of the City. It is situated at a place called Ring Road which used to be called King’s Square, now changed to Oba Ovonramwen Square by the present Governor of Edo State, Comrade Adams AliuOshiomhole. The type of heritage property found at Oba Ovonramwen square where the National Museum is situated can be grouped into two parts, namely :movable and immovable heritage,these are both man-made and natural collections.

This is excluding the water fountain that was built and declared open to the publi ...

The phenomenon of foreign women, who line the roadsides of Italy, has become a notorious fact of Italian life. These women work in sub-human conditions; they are sent out without any hope of regularizing their legal status and can be easily transferred into criminal networks. Many are Africans working as prostitutes to send money home to their families. For nearly twenty years the women of Benin City, a town in the state of Edo in the south-central part of Nigeria, have been going to Italy to work in the sex trade and every year successful ones have been recruiting younger girls to follow them. Nigerian sex worker in Italy The Nigerian trafficking industry is fueled by the combination of widespread emigration aspirations and severely limited possibilities for migrating to Europe. The term Trafficking of persons is restricted to instances where people are deceived, threatened, or coerced into situations of exploitation, including prostitution. This contrasts with Human smuggling, in which a migrant purchas ...

But No they waited till Adams Oshiomhole's innauguration. I am not at all fooled...are you?
Hello mallam. How can I get your latest book? I live in Benin City, Edo State
A serving member of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has passed on after several rounds of sexual bout in his girlfriend’s house in Benin City. The news came as a rude shock to residents and family members to the late corps member who was earlier posted to Jigawa State but returned to Edo State to continue the one year mandatory service because of the killings in the North. His girl friend who is in her mid 20s and a student of Shaka Momodu Polytechnic revealed that after hanging out with her Corper lover also in his 20s, he took alcohol and some suya and she accompanied him to a local dealer to buy an undisclosed drug before going to bed. Around 2a.m the Corper started shouting which attracted neighbours. They tried to pray to God to revive him from exhaustion while others sprinkled olive oil on him. The young lady, a chorister of Church of God Mission and the daughter a pastor in Warri, Delta State is currently kept at the Esigie Police Divisional Station with the landlord of the house located ...

Soyinka, In Benin, Condemns Good Governance Tour NOBEL Laureate, Prof Wole Soyinka, Friday in Benin City berated the ongoing Good Governance tour being led by the Minister for Information, Labaran Maku, describing it as a scam just as he commended Edo State governor, Adams Oshiomhole for not subscribing to the tour. Although he did not disclose the reason for his unannounced visit to the Benin Moat, The Guardian gathered that it may not be unconnected with the move to make the United Nations Economic, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) make the moat as a world heritage site. Soyinka, who made an unannounced stop at the Oba Oguola Press Centre while inspecting the historical Benin moat on the fence of the NUJ secretariat, told anxious journalists who had attempted to ask of his mission in the state that he is “happy that Oshiomhole told the leader of the Good Governance tour, Labaran Maku to go to *** ” Oshiohole had said: “The resources accruable to the state cannot afford to accommodate ...
I thought some persons said Comrade Governor Adams Oshiomhole said Edo State did not have the resources to take care of the National Good Governance Tour (NGGT) team.

Two killed as rival revenue collectors clash in Edo THERE is tension in Edo State following the killing of two revenue collectors attached to Akugbe Ventures licensed to collect revenue on behalf of the State Government due to on going war between the Akugbe ventures led by Tony Kabaka and the Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria (RTEAN) led by Osakpanwa Eriyo. Following the killing of the youths, the State Government Thursday suspended the collection of revenue in motor parks until the contending issues are resolved. But as it seems, the RTEAN members shun the State Government’s directive and went ahead to collect revenue yesterday morning but were apprehended by the Akugbe group who handed them over to the police. Meanwhile, two suspected armed robbers were shot dead Wednesday, while three were arrested after a gun duel between the robbers and soldiers attached to 195 Battalion, Agenebode, Edo State.

5-Year-Old Electrocuted In Benin City A five-year-Old child has been allegedly electrocuted in Benin City. The victim identified as Agbonmwanre Vincent popularly known in her neighbourhood as ‘Orobor’ was found stone-dead beside a barbing saloon at 13, Amuamwosa Street, Off Airport Road, Oko, Benin City at about 11.25 a.m. on Wednesday. Though, the actual source of electrocution remained unknown, a naked wire allegedly connected illegally by the barber was noticed near the corpse. While some residents alleged that the electrocution came from a well connected iron strip used to properly affix a concrete pole with the Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN) high tension cables, others however believed that the child may have accidentally held the wire that supplies current from the barber’s small generator to his saloon as he may have forgotten to hang the loose wire when PHCN restored electricity to the area on the fateful day. On the scene on Wednesday, sympathizers besieged the spot as the barber w ...

The imprisonment of Apostle Joseph Ayo Babalola: - Before the imprisonment of Apostle Joseph Ayo Babalola, the Lord had spoken to him that an instrument of honour was in a furnace and that He would want Joseph to go into the furnace to deliver it. Joseph Ayo told the Lord he was ready to go to wherever the Lord asked him to go and to do whatever He asked him to do. It was not long when two women at Otuo in Edo State lied against Joseph, that he asked them to drink poison because they were detected as witches. It was totally a false accusation, for Babalola spent this period in fasting and prayer during the lent at Odo-Owa and he never met any of the two women. In 1930, Babalola was arrested and taken to Ilorin from where he was transferred to Benin City for judgment, because Otua was under Benin City. Babalola’s case was decided and he was sentenced to Six months’ imprisonment, and even refused appeal. Subsequently, the lord showed him the instrument of honour in the furnace. He was a gentleman, named ...

Eghosa Imade: EXAMPLED ARBITRARINESS AND A CRASS LACK OF SELF RESPECT FROM EDO STATE... Earlier in the year, the Edo State governor, off-handily sacked his Permanent Secretary for environment; pointing to the dingy condition of the Ring Road, Benin City; including how the straitened traders converted the walk-ways to carry-on their flea market business... Pronto! the governor replaced the sacked Permanent Secretary with a certain Retired Major Loye... Now, could this be the same retired Major Loye, whom the same governor harangued in public, for excitedly knocking down the properties of some city sacred cows; had the hapless bloke arrested on the spot, with his hands bound (handcuffed) and had him thrown into a waiting open back pick-up van, that was subsequently driven through the city, as the whipping boy kicking and hollering against the nightmarish putdown (disgrace)? They're buddies again! Man must wacko...Phew!

HIV/AIDS Threatens Nigeria’s Future The Executive Director, Centre for Population and Environmental Development, Professor Andrew Onokerhoraye, has said that the rate at which HIV/AIDS currently is spreading among the youths is a threat to the future of Nigeria. He raised the alarm Thursday while speaking on the subject, ‘Young People at Risk of HIV/AIDS in Edo State: What should We Do?’ during the public presentation of the African Journal of Reproductive Health (AJRH), published by Women’s Health and Action Research Centre (WHARC), in Benin City.

The purported scientific feat that ordinarily deserves to be celebrated in the medical science world and the University of Benin, Benin City, Edo State, where the breakthrough was made as one of the renowned citadel of learning and the best university in the country and the whole of West Africa I believe, (according to the Webometric rankings) is controversial. (Very soon, Uniben students will no longer require visa to go to London and other countries. Once u present ur id card at d airport, u will be allowed in. Ha ha). The controversy arose when authorities of the institution disowned a lecturer in the university and the inventor of a cure for Human Immune Virus (HIV) and the Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS), Professor Isaiah Ibeh. Ibeh’s announcement is a breakthrough in his efforts towards the development of a new drug, which he had spent sleepless nights to research on. The silly reason the management of the university gave was dat he didn't follow due process and they immediately moved t ...
