Ondo State government has announced the lifting of the ban hitherto placed on activities in its forest reserves.

A statement issued by Commissioner of Information and Orientation, Mr Donald Ojogo, on Friday in Akure said that the lifting of the ban would take effect from November 15.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the State Executive Council had, on Aug. 13, placed a ban on all activities in the forest reserves across the state.

Ojogo said that the 10-week ban was aimed at bringing sanity to the sector and to enhance revenue generation to the state.
