The inauguration of the panel followed the directive of the Oyo state house of assembly on the CJ to set up a seven man panel to investigate a seven point allegations levelled against Engineer Olaniyan in a petition signed by a number of lawmakers.
Justice Abimbola described members of the panel as people of unquestionable integrity, not being members of any public service, legislative house or political parties.
Justice Abimbola urged members of the panel to have the fear of God, act in accordance with their conscience and to be fair and just in the discharge of their duties.
