Mr Ademorin Kuye, Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, made the disclosure at the 2015 Ministerial Press Briefing in Ikeja. He said the vehicles, which had since been presented to the traditional rulers, were to ease the movement of the beneficiaries in the discharge of their duties. Kuye said the government was committed to the welfare of Obas in the state, and would continue to take steps to demonstrate it. “With these vehicles and more that we have provided for our Obas and Chiefs, we can boldly say our traditional rulers are the most taken of in the whole of the country.“We see traditional rulers as partners in progress and we will continue to do our best to make them comfortable,’’ he said. Kuye said government was building new palaces and renovating old ones to enhance the comfort of traditional rulers. He said that the palaces of the Alara of Ilara, the Ayangburen of Ikorodu and Suenu had just been furnished for the comfort of the respective traditional rulers. Giving other statistics, Kuye said the government processed no fewer than 44 applications for the recognition and upgrade of chieftaincy stools in the last one year. (NAN)
