Dr. Fayemi who gave this warning while addressing traditional rulers in the state at  their first meeting since his emergence as governor, reiterated that his  administration was committed to the rule of law and would not do anything that would  undermine it.

The governor explained that the dissolution was informed by the striking out of the  suit filed by the ousted council chiefs and condemned the attempts of the erstwhile  chairmen to hinder workers from performing their lawful duties.

Governor Fayemi said his administration was committed to the unity and development  of the state and would not compromise on the efforts at maintaining peace in the  state.

He assured that his administration would not discriminate against anybody or group  of people, promising to accord  priority to the welfare of traditional rulers in the  state.
