Governor Makinde alongside other members of the Olubadan-in-Council are expected to speak to newsmen after the meeting.

It was also gathered that Governor Makinde may appoint and or confirm the nomination of Balogun to become the next Olubadan of Ibadan.
Recall that Dr Lekan Balogun was endorsed as the next Olubadan of Ibadanland by ten of the 11 members of the Olubadan-in-Council.
The Osi Balogun of Ibadanland, High Chief Tajudeen Ajibola, made the announcement at a briefing by the kingmakers on Wednesday, Naija News reports.
The Council also debunked rumors insinuating a legal tussle could scupper the succession to the Olubadan throne.
According to Ajibola, the kingmakers single-handedly chose Dr Balogun as the one next in line to ascend the throne of Olubadan according to tradition.
He also denied rumors to the health and wellness of the new Olubadan-elect.
