The Benin Traditional Council has postponed the coronation ceremony of
the new Oba of Benin. At a press conference today, the Chairman of the
Coronation Planning Committee, Prof. Gregory Akenzua said the date for
the coronation has been changed from September 26th to October 20th.
The change according to the council is due to the new date for the state
governorship election which is September 28th. INEC had rescheduled the
state governorship election which was earlier stated for September 10th
to September 28th due to some security threats.
