“Why will we sell communal land indiscriminately? You didn’t advise investors and developers to provide basic amenities, including schools and other amenities that will give comfort to residents in your area. All you are interested in is sell land, use the proceeds to purchase expensive vehicles and start bragging.

“Anyone that is involved in such an act henceforth, I will personally remove him from the position. Things are changing for good in Benin Kingdom. As Dukes, you should be well behaved. Behave responsibly both in principle and practice. Everything that has been said here must not change. Everyone has to abide by it,” Oba Ewuare II said.
