Yeoal Exclusive: Oba of Benin refused to endorse the presidential candidates?

When the presidential candidate of APC, Gen Buhari, visited the Oba of Benin to seek for his support and endorsement, people were shocked because the Oba did not come out to acknowledge his presence.  People got talking and felt it was a subtle way of showing he did not endorse Gen Buhari. 

Edo people instead looked forward to Pres. Goodluck Jonathan's visit because they felt he would endorse  him by receiving him. He also did not receivee him.

Instead, just like Gen Buhari, Pres Goodluck was received by the most senior palace chief, the Iyase of Benin Kingdom, Chief Igbe.

This development has got people wondering if the Oba does not like either of the aspirants or if he wants to be neutral on the issue.
