All sides to the Oba of Benin’s statement on ‘Godfatherism’

One thing that Nigeria Twitter is famous is the sharing of opinions that many people share when it comes to issues raised. From politics to social issues, Nigeria Twitter is very invested in sharing their views. On Twitter, the Oba of Benin is trending and it is birthing a conversation that many people have shared one or two views.

Following the huge political drama coming from Edo State, as it concerns the APC and the election in the state, the Oba has shared a few words to address the issue.

Following his call asking politicians to put an end to ‘Godfatherism’, many Nigerians have shared that the Oba was right on point as they pointed out that the political party, APC, has for long, with the influence of some of her notable members tried to make Edo State into how they have made Lagos.

While others stressed that the idea of Godfatherism will not be over, as that can also be seen in other parts of the country. Theses one shared that politicians will always have those that they look up to and those that they will always revere.


A few other people shared that the Oba’s statement may create issues for him especially with the desperate nature of politicians. This opinion was silenced by many from Edo State who reiterated that the Oba remains one of the most revered and powerful monarchs in the country. However, the Oba’s statement has been seconded by a larger number of people, both from Edo State and outside the state.
