    Take the time and read to educate yourselves… I was concerned about the report as well and sought to find the name of the Oba of benin on the list and decided to take time to download the report and understand the basis of their report. Why cant people just stop being critics for critic sake and educate themselves. Even if they are wrong, you can do one good thing, point this out or do yours – but comments by shakede above is intellectual laziness.

  2. Imadojemu Omofuoma says:

    Politically motivated researches like this one is a reproach to the Nigerian Nation. The man on the street knows that the most popular and surviving culture in Nigerian inspite of assults from foreign religions of Christianity and Islam is the culture of the Great Benin Empire.

  3. SHAKEDE S. OSEH says:

    Who are those behind this and what yardstick did they use. You cannot discountenance the position of the Oba of Benin in the whole of Africa. Oba of Benin merit the first position in such ranking.

  4. Curtis Mike says:

    Which position is the Oba of Benin?The research is both faulty and misleading
