‘‘This development is coming on the heels of reported illegal exploration activities going on in forest reserves across the state.

‘‘The illegal activities have resulted in loss of huge revenues by the state government,’’ he said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Akeredolu of the APC was sworn-in on Feb. 24, following his election on Nov. 26, 2016.
