Governor Adeleke while responding commended the committee for delivering diligently on its mandate and promise to study the report and implement the recommendations contained therein.
He stated that the committee’s report when implemented would contribute to the peaceful coexistence among the people of the state as regards traditional ruling affairs while announcing that his administration will ensure total respect for rule of law and respect for due process.
“I will ensure total respect for the rule of law and due process will guide all actions being done under my government,” Adeleke added
