The process includes proper stamping of evacuation papers to ensure thorough verification and accountability. Ambassador Emmanuel Asegem, the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Timber Control North, emphasized the importance of compliance with these new regulations.

“Timber dealers must ensure all monies are paid into the authorized government account,” stated Ambassador Asegem. “Failure to comply with these regulations may lead to the arrest of trucks and their handover to the appropriate authorities.”

Chief. Asegem also highlighted the restrictions on timber movement. the transport of timber is permitted only between the hours of 7 am and 6 pm daily. This regulation aims to enhance the control of timber activities within the state.

Timber dealers are urged to comply with the new regulations promptly to avoid disruptions in their operations.
