Benin monarch, Oba Ewuare II, yesterday, said peaceful co-existence of various ethnic groups is crucial to social-economic development of the state.

The monarch said this when he hosted the Igbo Community Union in the state, in his palace, yesterday.

He said he was poised and committed to welcome and accept various ethnic groups who are law abiding and have respect for the tradition and culture of the land.

“I will accommodate various ethnic groups which are law abiding and have respect for culture and tradition of the land,” he said. Oba Ewuare said he was interested in accommodating any ethic group from any part of the world that will have respect for traditional institutions and the law of the land.

The Oba said he was pleased with the large crowd of Igbo extraction during his coronation and showered encomiums on them for abandoning their businesses to felicitate with him on his ascension to the throne of his ancestors.

Stressing his determination to provide an enabling and rancour-free environment in ensuring economic development of the state, the monarch urged the groups to join the government and traditional institutions to realise the dream economic growth of the state              

He promised to look into proposed international market site at Utte that was allegedly frustrated by the activities of community development association (CDA) and enjoined the youths to shun anti-socio behaviours that could destroy their future.

The visitors had earlier through their President, Prof. Nathaniel Aniekwu told the Benin monarch that they were at his palace to congratulate him on his successful ascension to the throne of his ancestors as well as to pledged their unflinching loyalty and support to the palace.

Aniekwu expressed hope that their presence at the palace will strengthen the existing peace between the Benin monarch and the various ethnic groups in the state.
