Governor Adeleke Suspends Operators of State Mining Licences

In furtherance of his bid to reform the state’s Solid Mineral Sector, Governor Ademola Adeleke has directed immediate suspension of all mining firms operating the state’s mining licences.

All operators are to report to the Committee on Assets Verification and Recovery chaired by Dr B.T Salami with copies of their Memorandum of Understanding which governs their relationship with the state government.

In a public announcement from the Secretary to the State Government, Hon Teslim Igbalaye, Governor Adeleke reiterated his resolve to recover all fund owed Osun state and stop the reaping of state assets from mining to revenue collection.

The suspension of the operators is to remain in force until the conclusion of the ongoing review of the MOU between the state as the owner of the licences and the operators.

All operators are to report to the committee on Monday by 12pm.
