Osun State Governor, Senator Ademola Adeleke has announced the immediate lifting of suspension on forestry consultants and permits across the state.
The Governor had in early November directed a suspension and review of the following category of permits namely 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 directive on Tuesday made available to newsmen by Spokesperson to the Governor, Mallam Olawale Rasheed said Governor Adeleke noted that the lifting of the suspension was sequel to an ongoing review of the state’s internal revenue service.
The Governor however warned the forestry operators and permit holders to play according to the rule 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.
