An Ad-hoc committee set up by the House to study how the National hero could be rehabilitated also recommended that the state government should pay N50, 000 to Pa Akinkunmi as monthly upkeep, provide security guards and house keepers for the elder statesman, and grant scholarships to  his children.


It was also recommended by the Committee that the State legislators should donate a substantial amount of money to the icon, who is in his early 70s and also give him a state burial after his death.
