Saheed Popoola led ad- hoc committee would do thorough investigation on the activities of Harmony Holdings regarding the state government owned properties.

Chairman of the committee, Hon Ayokunle Awolola had while presenting his report, observed among other things, that the Harmony Holdings Ltd claim that the first lease agreement with Zest Management was skewed against the interest of the state and the manner as well as circumstances the lease changed to Island Trading Nigeria Limited led to the termination of the first lease agreement.
