GOVERNOR Ademola Adeleke has ordered mining companies operating in Osun State to suspend their activities forthwith pending the review of their Memorandum of Understanding with the preceding administration of Governor Gboyega Oyetola.

A statement by Governor Adeleke’s spokesperson, Rasheed Olawale, in Osogbo on Wednesday has disclosed.

“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 licenses,” stated Olawale, adding that the suspension is until further notice.

“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 licenses and the operators.”

He also ordered owners of the mining companies to present copies of the MoU given to them by the previous administration.

“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,” he added and directed all operators to report to the committee on Monday by 12pm.
