Buhari Calls For Return Of More Nigeria’s Artefacts Abroad


Buhari Calls For Return Of More Nigeria’s Artefacts Abroad

President Muhammadu Buhari has requested nations, organizations, corporate and governmental bodies to restore treasures owned by Nigeria.

Buhari made the statement on Monday in response to the monarch, HRH Oba Ewuare II, receiving Okukur and the Head of Oba of Benin bronzes from the United Kingdom.

When British forces invaded the ancient Benin Kingdom in 1897, they took the items with them.

After 125 years, they were repatriated from the Universities of Cambridge and Aberdeen.

The President praised the schools and the UK government for providing Nigeria with the necessary Export Permits at no cost.

”These are unprecedented moves worth emulating by others”, the President said while encouraging Britain to return others.

In collaboration with royal families and kingdoms, he promised that the arts would be returned to museums and other facilities.

Buhari also praised Germany for returning 1,130 Benin bronzes to the country this year.

The Nigerian leader praised the work of Sarafa Ishola, the High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, and the National Commission for Museums and Monuments (NCMM).

In other news, the founder of Salvation Ministry, David Ibiyeomie, has proclaimed that persons who profess love for others but do not back it up with financial or other valued gifts are not real lovers.

The cleric, speaking at a church-sponsored event to commemorate Valentine’s Day in 2022, argued that all genuine loves entail giving and sacrifices.

Pastor Ibiyeomie made the assertion in relation to church offerings and tithes, claiming that individuals who struggle to provide money to the church do not love God.

The renowned clergyman, who claims to be a pathological lover and giver, disclosed that in 2021, he spent over N400 billion on charity, emphasizing that he donates 80 percent of his earnings.
