Reviving Igbeti Marble Site Will Boost State IGR- OYSHA
The need for the Oyo state government to fastrack the takeoff operation of Igbeti Marble site and getting investors for the development of other mineral deposits in the state form part of resolutions during plenary at the Oyo state house of assembly.
This followed the adoption of a report by the committee on solid minerals development, presented by Mr. Femi Okedoyin representing Saki West state constituency.
The report, in pursuant to the motion earlier moved by Mr. Qozeem Olayanju representing Irepo/Olorunsogo constituency on the need to revive Igbeti Mable company, also urged the executive to urgently constitute the Nigerian Marble Mining company board for the development of mineral deposits in the state.
It also recommended that the house committee on public account, finance and appropriation should consider upward review of the solid mineral agency capital expenditure in the 2020 budget.
Speaking further on the report, the sponsor of the motion, Mr. Qozeem Olayanju expressed hope that the Igbeti Marble site will boost the state’s Internally Generated Revenue if properly harnessed.
The house in another development urged the National Identity Management Commission, NIMC, on the need to expedite action on the issuance of National identity cards to citizens and residents of Oyo state.
