Ambode: News Lagos Targets N1trn Yearly Budget In Two Years. by aresa: 3:27pm On Jul 25, 2016







To increase monthly revenue to N30bn by next year, N50bn in 2018

The Lagos State government will reduce dependence on federal allocation and increase its Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) to N30bn monthly in 2017 and N50bn monthly in 2018, and hit a yearly budget of N1trn by 2018.

It also said it will scale up and run efficient revenue collection machinery through the convergence of operations of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) and utilisation of cutting edge technologies.


This was disclosed at a four-day retreat for members of the State Executive Council, body of Permanent Secretaries and heads of government agencies and parastatals at the VIP Chalets in Badagry.

In a communiqué issued at the end of the retreat themed, Reflect, Reappraise, Restrategise: Raising the Bar of Governance, the government said participants intensively deliberated on the six pillars of Lagos State Development Plan (LSDP), which are infrastructural development, sustainable environment, finance, economic development, social development and security and governance.
Speaking on the budget goal, Lagos State Commissioner for Economic Planning and Budget, Mr. Akinyemi Ashade, said though the target is ambitious, measures were being adopted to achieve it.

He said: “It requires thinking and what we are going to do differently is ensure that we use technology to drive it, in terms of automation and collection. What we are also going to ensure is that the whole reform around consumption taxes is taken to another level.

The land administration system, the Geographic Information System (GIS), will support this initiative. We believe that once we are through with the automation of the processes, reform in the consumption tax administration in the state, and blocking of all loopholes, we will have the right funding to finance all these plans. And we will not forget one critical fact, which is that all is about Public Private Partnership because we are also going to use that to drive implementation of our plan.

If only there was resource control, most ND states would have been rocking Dubai by now.

Very ambitious plan by the governor. Ambode is really in a world of his own, no rival, no competition. He is just thinking ahead of all others.

Lagos state government should also consider and adopt the TSA revenue collecting system, it will seriously help them in blocking revenue leakages and increasing the state's overall revenue generation.

Gov Fashola Commissions Digital Mapping/Geographic Information System Project


http://www.pmnewsnigeria.com/2011/03/08/gov-fashola-commissions-digital-mappinggeographic-information-system-project/





The land administration system, the Geographic Information System (GIS)


One of the tools and IGR generating method is the application of the Geographic Information System (GIS) which was 1st in Nigeria when the system was built and commissioned by his predecessor, Fashola.

This is a great example where some sensible and visionary Leaders lay down strong foundation for future leaders to build and thrive on..


This is one thing I love about Lagos state, there's no shortage of credible, competent, visionary and productive leaders..

You shouldn't have any issue if you are not a tax dodger and if you are jobless, there is nothing to tax.

Why do your kind always feel threatened when the issue of resource control is raised?
Imagine the IGR if we were only paying taxes to fed govt so we can retain our resources.
Our IGR would shoot through the roof if given the chance.

Resource control doesn't determine progress and development especially in the absence of good, credible, competent and visionary leaders.


Of what relevance is resource control when there is still zero development with huge allocations, derivations, NDDC and all the other benefits that the rest of the country doesn't get?

What kind of leaders do they have in the Delta?

Ibori

Alams

Odili

Uduaghan

Goodluck Jonathan

Akpabio


One is still in jail for looting the state dry

One was an ex convict, international fugitive and also looted his state dry

Uduaghan left behind the largest state debt in the history of Nigeria @ N700 billion

Odili's case is still pending with the EFCC

Goodluck Jonathan didn't build ordinary dog cage when he was the governor in Bayelsa

Akpabio did not build more than 4 major projects apart from few roads and 1 flyover.



Sadly with all the huge funds that flowed into that region, they all have less than 5 million people in each state, but still nothing to show for all that money so this is not about resources control, it's about bad and corrupt leaders..

I am sure you won't recognize a real threat when one stares you in the face. Someone is relaying your tendencies to you and somehow you think the person feels threatened. Can you show me something, anything, you guys have not managed to run aground? Only Edo (technically not Niger Delta) and the folks I mentioned in my earlier post seem to have managed a civilization. Majority of the folks there just want easy money, get drunk and repeat. Zero sense of self preservation. All they do is blow sh.it up.

This is how they blow up their land to turn it into Dubai..


Their leaders pay them to blow up pipelines, destroy their land just to secure pipeline repair contract to repair the same pipeline they destroyed and hire the same dumb and clueless youths to blow it up again for repair contracts..


And they only get paid small change for destroying their land..
