Speaking during the final burial ceremony of late Olubadan Oba Saliu Adetunji on Saturday, Governor Seyi Makinde said he had received the letter of recommendation from the kingmakers and would do the needful without further delay.
According to him, the crisis trailing the Olubadan chieftaincy law following the review has been amicably resolved. The move, he said, is another victory for Ibadanland and Oyo State as a whole.
