Osun govt disengages consultants, revenue collectors on mining sites



The Osun State Government has disengaged all consultants and revenue collectors on all quarry sites across the state.

The disengagement which is with immediate effect was directed by Samuel Oyedotun, Chairman, Review Committee on Solid Minerals.

The committee is among the review panels inaugurated by the Osun State Governor, Senator Ademola Adeleke shortly after his inauguration.

In a statement signed by the secretary of the committee, Hashim Abioye, the decision became necessary in order to stem the tide of loss of revenue for the state.

The statement also warned all illegal revenue collectors to steer clear of all quarry sites in the state.

According to Abioye: “The committee is in receipt of information that some unauthorized agents have been collecting revenues purportedly for the state government on quarry sites, which end up in private pockets.

“Consequently, as part of the mandate of the committee, all individual or corporate consultants and revenue collectors on the state quarry sites should henceforth desist from plying the quarry sites in the state as a new arrangement will soon be announced in that regard in conjunction with the Osun State Office of Solid Minerals.”

The statement further directed “all quarry operators and stakeholders in the quarry business in the state are to within 48 hours from the time of this announcement contact the Committee on Solid Minerals for information about the new arrangement” on 08101006724 and 08135889525.
