The Osun State Government has announced the immediate lifting of suspension on forestry consultants and permits across the state.
The governor, Senator Ademola Adeleke had, in earlier directed a suspension and review of some permits including, plantation or forest reserve concession allocation permit; sawmill permit and renewal; flinch sawn evacuation permit; timber and logs permit; hammering permit or release permit; motor-saw permit; forest reserve access permit and Tungya farming system allocation permit.
In a new development, the governor, through his spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed, noted that the lifting of the suspension was sequel to an ongoing review of the state’s internal revenue service.
Governor Adeleke, however, warned forestry operators and permit holders to play according to the rules and ensure transparency in their day to day activities.
“Any forestry operator, who violates operational regulations, will be summarily removed from the field”, Governor Adeleke directed.
