NGF 30-Man Team Visits Lagos To Understudy State’s IGR Template by EcoBrick: 5:06am On Jun 09
June 8, 2021

The Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) and the Federal Ministry of Finance last week sent a 30-man team to Lagos State to study its Internally Generated Revenue template and exchange ideas on how to ameliorate the economic meltdown in the country.

Federal, state and local governments continue to experience tougher financial meltdown following the drop in distributable revenue from the Federation Account.

Representatives of governors of the six geo-political zones, comprising Gombe, Nasarawa, Delta, Ebonyi, Sokoto and Ekiti states, were present at the meeting.

Leader of the 30-man NGF delegation Mr. Olanrewaju Ajogbasile noted that the visit, which was funded by the World Bank and the Federal Ministry of Finance, is aimed at exchanging ideas and learn how the Lagos State Government drive its economy and the strategies it uses to grow its Internal Generated Revenue (IGR) despite the Global Economic Meltdown occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic and the destructive ENDSARS protest.

“We are here in Lagos to learn from the innovative strategies of the Lagos State Government, we have come to learn, adopt and follow Lagos State template in revenue generation – the template which is the best in the country today,” he stated.

Commending the state government for adopting technology in its revenue drive, Ajogbasile noted that Lagos IGR technique should be a standard template for achieving sustainable economic growth for the country.

“The decision to visit Lagos was informed by the giant strides Lagos State is making in growing its Internally Generated Revenue despite the corrosive impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the economy.”

He said it was highly inspiring to note that Lagos still grossed a total of N418.99 billion, which accounted for 32.1 per cent of the total N1.33 trillion IGR recoded by the 36 states in Y2020 in spite of various challenges faced by the state last year.

Commissioner for Finance Dr. Rabiu Olowo stated that the state government had introduced a lot of innovations to drive its cashless revenue collection policy drive, stressing that the state financial system has been fully automated, giving no room to cash transactions in any government financial deal.

You are right.
That was how the government extorted my neighbour for driving one-way.
They even extort businesses and organizations in the name of tax.
Imagine that?

And what have Lagosians received in return for all the money collected from them under different guises?
Ordinary tap water in the entire state is not possible.
Even to have every child in quality government schools, no way.
Feeder roads in front of people’s houses, mosques, churches, offices etc nko?

Did Mobolaji Johnson, Jakande and even Awolowo have a tiny fraction of what Sanwo-Olu, Ambode, Fashola and Tinubu spent in 22 years plus?

Na real jeun s’oke jeun s’apo since 1999 that the Bourdillon monster has been in charge.

Isn't it too early to display stupidity? At least dedicate a few of your morning hours to some kind of productive activity, later in the day you can be comfortably stupid.

Given justice and fairness, security, power (electricity), education, access roads , easy access to finance, all states in Nigeria will be so productive that this type of journey wouldn't be necessary.
