The Uzama do not make kings for Benin people. The kings are made by the Almighty God from the big home above. But they are crowned by the Uzama as they emerge with the authority of the Benin Law of primogeniture.
The Book is a narrative of the circumstances of the appearances of the monarchs of the kingdom of Benin through the Ogiso and the Ọba dynasties, and the processes of their crowning.
The book is indeed a resource material for all lovers of history, particularly those interested in Benin history and culture, as they concern the monarchs and the Uzama.

The recommendations within the pages of this most illuminating work do not only tally with the true African way of life, but are also reflective of a system of government that is both all-inclusive and all-embracing.
Prof. Jack A. Aigbodioh
The author in no less scholarly manner adopts the simple to complex method of intellectual X-ray of matters within the ambit of conceptual, historical, etymological accounts on social, political and philosophical discourses. I therefore, strongly recommend this book which fulfills both didactic and polemic requirements of a truly scholarly researched treatise for use by social scientists, philosophers, development planners and all those who love knowledge that is holistic.
Matthew A. Izibili, Ph.D.
Anyone in search of a book that beautifully explores the place and evolution of the concept of democracy in human history and yet neatly presents the intricacies of democracy as a lived experience in African places has gotten one. Gregory Ogbenika provides in this book one of the most fascinating narratives of the African side of the story of democracy.

“The present work on FORMATION, THE CATHOLIC PRIESTHOOD AND THE MODERN AGE: Festschrift in Honour of Rev. Fr. Anselm Jimoh Edited by Francis E. Ikhianosime and Gregory E. Ogbenika, is a realization of one of the greatest dreams of our time- the dream of keeping the fascination of the centrality of God in priestly formation alive and attractive even in modern times. [This work], therefore, beats the drum for this harvest of thoughts from the best minds you can ever imagine. It contains a college of perceptions crystallized as a thought contribution by various authors, which will survive the physical structures of generations yet to come. [This work] sounds the drum for a piece by productive academics whose productivity is marked by happy versatility, rich variety, unfailing originality, consistent incisiveness, high voltage reasoning, limpidity of style and unwavering logic.”
