He noted that there is need to acknowledge the valuable roles our Obas or traditional rulers play in our community . He said the committee would be charged to address all the reactions generated in appointment made by senator Ibikunle Amosun led administration, make appropriate recommendations and identity all the Obas involved .

According to the chairman of the committee, Obas Kehinde Olugbenle , the Paramount Ruler of Yewaland ,he said the institution has been bastardized by the last regime led by senator Ibikunle Amosun. He said the number of 1st Class Obas is nothing to write home about .
