Following the King's passing away, the former senator from Oredo Federal Constituency of Edo state has paid his last respect in customary fashion - big words.
Patrick Obahiagbon, a politician from Edo state became a household name when he was representing his constituency in the Federal house of assembly. His use of big, strange words ensured that people always wanted to listen to him, most times just for the laughs.
He has commented on the death of the Oba of Benin, after the announcement was made yesterday by Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo.
Read the poem below:
"The heart of the land of igodomigodo
Yes..the heart of the land of igodomigodo
suffereth a phlebotomy
The sacred chalk has been broken
The savanah bush
rumbles from the incandescent foot walk
of the “phoenixian” leopard
Oh……the land of igodomigodo
suffereth a venesection
Aplomb in realization like the Egyptian
bird of Phoenix,igodomigodo’s
phlebotomized land shall drink soon
the traditional meriba’s aqua.
The Umogun scintillates…scintillates and scintillates….."
