Just In: Masari Issues Executive Order On Mineral Resources, Mining In Katsina 

Katsina State has given an executive matching order making it mandatory for the Governor’s consent to be sought and obtained by potential license applicants before exploring mineral resources in the State.

The State Commissioner for Natural Resources, Abdullahi Imam, made the disclosure at Government House, Katsina.

He told newsmen that introducing the executive order has become imperative to checkmate abuses, resuscitate revenue earning opportunities for the State and instill sanity as well as ensure that legitimate miners obtain the requisite licenses.

“Hitherto, mining and quarry activities as well as land utilization in the State have been going on without any law and without the knowledge and regulation of the State government. Previously, mining activities’ site identification, obtaining of community consent, and license have been done in Abuja and the relevant Ministry, but now with the executive order and the approval of the necessary guidelines by the State’s executive council, the Governor’s consent must be sought before obtaining license”, he said.

According to the commissioner, the executive order will not be necessarily passed through the assembly since there are existing provisions in the constitution that even guaranteed the Governor to make certain orders, adding that the new mining guidelines will be made available to the public soon.
