Abstract

This paper examines the Military Regime in Edo State. It discusses the military governors of the state between the period of 1991-1999. It analyses the strength and weaknesses of the military governors during the period under focus. Data for the study was obtained through oral interview as primary sources and secondary sources like books, newspapers, articles, journals, theses and dissertation were also used. It was found that some of the military governors contributed immensely to the development of Edo State. It was also found that Captain Baba AdamuIyam, the governor between 1996-1998 was more of a curse than a blessing to the people of Edo State. It concludes that military rule is an aberration.
