The governor, who used the meeting to recall the age long relationship between the Roman Empire and the Benin Kingdom, stressed the need for the relationship to continue.

Addressing the Italian delegation, Obaseki said: “Her (Boldrini) activities in food and agricultural organisation has helped in no little way to bring succour and food to migrants and refugees. We thank you for your diligent services to humankind and humanity in general. We believe and we are convinced that you will continue in the same way. Benin City is your home.”
