The Lagos State Ministry of Justice’s Directorate of Legislative Drafting on Monday stated that many people who are not from the royal lineage jostle for thrones in the state.
The Director, Legislative Drafting, Mrs Aderinsola Olarenwaju, revealed that there are at least 93 Obas in the state and 10 empty stools still vacant.
“The law really needs to be upgraded. They should help us fast-track this review. Everybody wants to become Oba, chief.
“Even those with red blood, that are not bluebloods, (royal lineage) they want to become obas. Let us do something and help our laws and help save the state.
“The state’s size is not increasing. As of today, we have 93 obas on ground and there are about 10 stools that needed to be occupied, ” he said.
