Oyo State Governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde, at the weekend in Ibadan, the state capital, discussed with traditional rulers across the state plans to reconstitute the Council of Obas and Chiefs.

The meeting was attended by traditional rulers from the five geopolitical zones in the state.

The Council has not been sitting since 2011.

Makinde, who was represented by his Deputy, Barrister Abdul-Raheem Adebayo Lawal, said that the current state or the Council has become a source of worry for the government of the state.

The governor expressed the readiness of his administration to fully resolve all issues and make the Council functional again.

He added that his administration has earlier called for recommendations and suggestions from the members of the Counci.

“We have engaged the monarchs in consultative activities relating to the Council of Obas and Chiefs in Oyo State.

“Recall that this Council has not been functioning as required by law and it has become a source of worry for the government of Oyo State.

“The governor, in his wisdom, has decided to do something about it in such a way that the Council becomes functional again.

“Since 2011, this Council has not sat for once, and you recall that our royal fathers are custodians of culture in various local government areas and zones of Oyo State.

“Therefore, the government, with a view to reconstitute the Council, called for ideas, suggestions and recommendations from our royal fathers in a manner that will promote stability in the Council and promote development in Oyo State.

“We have received observations and suggestions from the five geopolitical zones of the state, Ibadan zone, Oyo, Ibarapa, Ogbomoso and Oke-Ogun zones”, Makinde said.
