The Esama of Benin kingdom Gabriel Igbinedion presented a seven-month tiger to the Oba Ewuare II, the Oba of Benin on Friday, March 24.

Igbinedion while making the presentation said the tiger is a mark of respect to the king in the palace.

The new gift for the Oba threw the place into a wave of joy as many individuals thronged into the palace to have a glimpse of the new resident.

Receiving the gift, the Oba of Benin urged parents especially those living abroad to teach their children to speak and write the Benin language.

The Oba while receiving three pupils he awarded scholarship during his post coronation tour of Benin, said all Benin wards must be encouraged to speak and write the Benin language.

The Oba said speaking the language will serve as a better means of identification and display of the Benin culture by the people.
