Governor Senator Ademola Adeleke of Osun State, Southwest Nigeria has directed the immediate suspension of the licences of all mining firms operating in the state.

Gatekeepers News reports that the directive was contained in a statement signed by the Secretary to the State Government, Teslim Igbalaye, obtained in the State capital, Osogbo on Tuesday.

Adeleke reiterated his administration’s resolve to recover all funds owed the state and stop the reaping of state assets from mining to revenue collection.

He further directed all operators of state mining licences 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.

The statement added, “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.”
