Edo in Diaspora wants Benin Monarch’s support for specialised market

Published

on




By Ozioruva Aliu

BENIN CITY – A United Kingdom (UK) based Businessman from Edo state, Mr. Monday Ohuimuwen has called for support from the Oba of Benin, Omo N’Oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Ewuare II to set up a specialised market in Benin for machineries and domestic appliances.

Ohuimuwen said the initiative has the support of Edo people in Diaspora comprising Benin, Esan and Afemai and that the palace has been contacted to inform it that such a project will soon take off in Benin City.

 

According to the International businessman, “we want the palace to help us with a land and we are suing for the Omo N’Oba’s support which will do a lot in the area of Public Relations and advertisement.”

He further explained that the way the Group intends to work is to get Edo people  abroad to gather their resources and form a cooperative and the money so gathered would be invested in the business .

According to him: “We will have a specialised market, where a lot of people in Europe will pull resources together. That money will be used to send the goods to Nigeria. The good thing about it is that before the present Oba of Benin came to the throne, in one of his interviews, he stated that he likes to have something like a market for the Diaspora where they will sell imported machineries like I have mentioned. The Oba knows what we are saying.”

On the modalities for selling the goods, Ohuimuwen said: “These goods will be sent to different local governments markets where our brothers and sisters from the various villages will come and buy. Some of these local government areas have boundaries with other states, such as Delta, Kogi and Ondo, which will further buy from us and it will spread. These border states do not have as many people in Diaspora as we are.”

He pleaded with the palace of the Oba of Benin to facilitate the take-off in terms of logistics support and provision of the site to be used for the Diaspora market.

Lewandowski equals Bundesliga record with 40th goal

Published

on

Robert Lewandowski equalled Gerd Mueller’s 49-year-old scoring record as the Bayern Munich striker netted his 40th Bundesliga goal of the season in a 2-2 draw at Freiburg on Saturday.

Lewandowski, FIFA’s best male player of 2020, has equalled Mueller’s tally, scored over 34 games in 1971/72, in just 28 league fixtures this term.

Lewandowski converted a penalty for the champions after 26 minutes to equal the league’s record.

As part of his penalty celebrations, the Poland striker lifted his match shirt to reveal a picture of Gerd Mueller over the text “4ever Gerd”.

The fixture was briefly halted after Lewandowski equalled Mueller’s milestone as his Bayern team-mates made a guard-of-honour on the side of the pitch which the smiling 32-year-old ran through.

Freiburg drew level almost immediately when Manuel Gulde headed in at the near post from a corner on 29 minutes after slipping his marker.

Bayern, who were crowned German champions last weekend for the ninth season in a row, upped the tempo after the break.

Serge Gnabry had a goal disallowed six minutes into the second-half after the VAR spotted he was offside in tapping home a Leroy Sane cross.

However, the Bavarians kept up the pressure and when David Alaba’s long-range pass found Thomas Mueller in the area just moments later, he squared for Sane who hit home on 53 minutes.

Freiburg had their chances to equalise as second-half replacements Lucas Hoeler and Janik Haberer both went close before Christian Guenter brought the sides level nine minutes from time.

Lewandowski can still break Mueller’s record as Bayern have one match left of the campaign at home to Augsburg next Saturday.

The former Borussia Dortmund forward, who has scored 47 goals in 39 games in all competitions this season, is set to be crowned the Bundesliga’s top-scorer for the sixth time in eight years.

His tally of 40 league goals this season includes four hat-tricks as well as a four-goal haul in Bayern’s nervy 4-3 home win against Hertha Berlin last October.
