Ogun targets N36 Billion tax revenue in 2015

The Ogun State Internal Revenue Service on Tuesday in Abeokuta said it generated N15.14bn between January and October, 2014.
The agency however added that it had mapped out plans to generate N36bn in 2015.


I don't know which budget presentation you and your cohorts attended

The links below is evidence of what was presented in November with a video included from Channels TV

Politics / Re: Ogun Generates N6bn monthly by geeez: 12:38pm On Dec 24, 2014

Can you reconcile whatever claims you quoted above with this futuristic target made during the budget presentation?

He told the lawmakers that the agency was expected to generate N36.77billion in 2015

From the 2015 projection, the monthly target is even N3 billion.

Convince us on why the excess you are claiming is not accounted for even during budget presentation.

He told them N10bn at the budget presentation which happened well over two weeks ago

That's what Daily Independent reported in my OP and all lawmakers present took note of that

I'm not from Ogun but I have investments there and very senior people in government

Just even listen to yourself. A state that generated N4bn last year plans to generate N1.5bn or thereabout next year and you don't think there's a problem
Politics / Re: Ogun Generates N6bn monthly by geeez: 12:19pm On Dec 24, 2014
The links below show the story of Ogun State's IGR

As at last year, it was N4bn monthly

These are from several media sources and besides I have friends in the cabinet who have attested to this so it's Ledaerhsip newspaper versus all the other media agencies








The Ogun Internal Revenue Service (OGIRS) said on Tuesday that it generated N15.14 billion between January and October.
The Chairman of the service, Mr Babajide Odubanjo, said this in Abeokuta while defending the 2015 budget proposal of the agency before the Ogun State House of Assembly.
Odubanjo said that the revenue was raised from stamp duty, articulated vehicles dealers permits and licences, road taxes and tax investigations.
He told the lawmakers that the agency was expected to generate N36.77billion in 2015.
The chairman said the agency had proposed N1.5billion as its total expenditure made up of N400million projected capital expenditure and N1.1billion recurrent expenditure.
He said that the major target of the agency in 2015 was to improve tax revenue by 50 per cent.
In her presentation, the General Manager, Ogun Water Corporation, Alhaja Monsurat Agboola, said the provision of water would be improved upon across the three senatorial zones of the state.
Agboola said that the corporation would recapture all customers that had been disconnected on a result of massive road construction in the state.
She said that the agency would increase the number of its customers from 517,093 to 1,084,186.
The general manager explained that rehabilitation of water facilities would be carried out at water schemes at Ijebu Imushin, Wasimi, Ikene, Ipokia, Ilishan, Owode Egba, Ajilete, old Ota, Igan Alade and Imeko.
She said that the corporation had proposed a total expenditure of N4.8billion in 2015 with N3.5billion earmarked for capital expenditure and N1.3billion projected as recurrent expenditure.

@Ngwa I need one more source that corrobates this your lie apart from Leaderhsip. I've provided seven links that are pretty much saying the same thing. N4bn monthly last year, N5bn earlier this year and N6bn now

N10bn monthly is very achievable
Politics / Re: Ogun Generates N6bn monthly by geeez: 11:56am On Dec 24, 2014
Op, are you smoking meth? It says in the report that their target is 10billion. They didn't even state how much it is now in the report.

Besides, why should we listen to what a criminal politician has to say?..give us reports from the statistics department not thre words of a low life politician that would lie at anything to keep himself afloat

It's either you can't read or have comprehension issues

So where did op get his 6 billion monthly from?

I think Ogun and Osun are two different states
Politics / Re: Ogun Generates N6bn monthly by geeez: 11:22am On Dec 24, 2014
Story there was a similar thread yesterday that stated that Osun generated 12 billion in 10 months.
Why do you APC like lying like this?

I think Osun does N1.5bn monthly

I was at a function in Lagos when I heard him say that and when I checked the state government's website, it was there

No one can lie about IGR because it's not only verifiable but you'd be shooting yourself on the foot of you overstated it

Politics / Ogun Generates N6bn monthly by geeez: 11:06am On Dec 24, 2014
Contrary to one report that Ogun State generates N1.5bn monthly which made FP, N1.5bn is actually what the state generates in one week

Mods do the needful

Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, said his administration has set a target of N10 billion as its monthly Internally Generated Revenue (IGR), up from the current N6 billion.

Amosun spoke on Tuesday during a Town Hall Meeting on the 2015 budget held at Kuto, Abeokuta.

He explained that it was the only way the state government could survive the dwindling allocation from the Federation Account.

Amosun, while fielding questions from stakeholders at the event, said the new target would take effect from 2015 and would not in any way inconvenience the people.

He disclosed that funds from the Federation Account had been dwindling since 2011 and explained that it worsened to the extent that many states found it difficult to pay their workers.

The wage bill of the state, he added, including allowances, had risen to about N8 billion monthly adding that “only Ogun and Lagos states now generate revenue exceeding the allocation from the Federation Account”.

“What the administration is doing is to make Ogun State the economic hub of the nation ahead of Lagos State,” he said.

He expressed happiness that the state had begun to take its pride of place in the comity of nations with the recent classification as the industrial capital of Nigeria.

“What we are doing today is to take stock and see how far we have gone and those things we need to do better by further listening to our people.

“Ogun will get to a time when it will be auto-driven, system driven so that governors will not have difficulty in making things happen, they will not have difficulty in paying salaries and doing all of those and I am happy we are taking our prime position in the comity of nations.

“We are now the industrial capital of Nigeria but what we intend doing is to make Ogun State the economic capital of Nigeria, we want to challenge Lagos.

“The Finance Minister had confirmed that there are challenges in revenue accruing from oil due to oil theft and, as we are speaking, they are yet to pay us, the only way we can pay salaries is to think outside the box and see how we can improve our IGR.

“We are increasing the IGR without unnecessarily inconveniencing our people, the target is N10 billion by next year because there is no way our wages will exceed N10 billion. With this, we will not rely on the Federal Government again, but we still have a big challenge to pay our salaries,” Amosun added.

Speaking earlier, the state Commissioner for Budget and Planning, Mrs. Oluwande Muoyo, said the Amosun administration “believes strongly in participatory democracy and has always carried the people along in the process of preparing the state’s annual budget”.

While highlighting the various achievements of the administration, she noted that according to the 2014 World Bank Report on Doing Business in Nigeria, Ogun State was listed as one of the five most improved states in the country.

“The same World Bank in its 2008 and 2010 Reports had ranked the state as one of the lowest performers among the 36 states in Nigeria. No doubt, this is a significant progress,” she added.

Lagos you mean!

I don't have the figures for the states but I know that most of these investments have been in Lagos, Ogun and Oyo

The SW as a whole have had about 95% of all FDIs in the recent years

Ogun as a matter of fact is now Nigeria's most industrialized state while Lagos is second

Break Down of the IGR of Lagos
IGR from Banking, Insurance and Financial houses ---------- 20% ---------- Banking industry controlled by Delta igbos
IGR from Telecommunication firms and ISP ------ --- ------ 18%---------- MTN,Etisalat, Airtel foreign owned
IGR from Retail /Wholesale business ------- --- ---16% ----------- Retail and wholesale Business controlled by Igbos
IGR from the Oil and gas and service companies----- -- 30%------ Oil and Gas Industry is actually Niger Delta industry headquartered in Lagos
IGR from Dangote , BUA other top Northern businesses---- 7%------ Bulk importation of Sugar, Flour , Cement from the North
IGR from construction , Agents , land lords -------- 5% ------- construction , Agents , land lords controlled by ALL
IGR from taxi,Okada and bus drivers ------- 1%--------- Taxi , bus driving, Okada controlled by Yorubas and Aboka
IGR from tailors and agbo sellers --- ----- 0%--------- tailors and agbo sellers controlled by Yorubas
IGR from Baba Ijebu, bet9ja --- ---------- 1%---------- Baba Ijebu controlled by Yorubas
IGR from Hotels , bars, clubs , restaurants, eateries --- 2% -- controlled by ALL

I've always tried to restrain myself from commenting on NL and just read through comments and refrain from commenting when someone types my mind but now I have to do this.

How is banking in Nigeria controlled by Delta Igbos?

You're just a fat lair and I've been following your irritating tribalistic and nauseating comments

FYI, Yorubas own and control most of banks in Nigeria from FBN to GTBank, Heritage, FCMB, Wema and Skye. Union and UBA are struggling in my opinion and Access still has a lot of Yorubas and Edos as owners

You can only lay claims to Zenith, Diamond and Fidelity

Now regarding the lies you posted as breakdown, you can click on the link below to see that Yoruba dominated businesses as well as foreign owned ones are the main sources of Lagos' IGR.


Note that the SW got over 95% of FDIs into Nigeria last year because we've made the environment ideal for businesses to thrive.

And Ogun State currently generates over N6bn monthly from an average of N2.7bn monthly in 2013. It will take your erosion ravaged state 15yrs to catch up. Besides the state plans to generate an IGR of N10bn per month in 2015 which from all indications is possible


And note that when Amosun became governor, the state was barely generating N730m monthly and he's still in his first term.

This was how Lagos started in 1999 and now everyone is rushing over to enjoy the benefits

How come the murdered girl trusted a well known child molester in the neighborhood well enough to go into an uncompleted building with him unaccompanied?

She also said he once disappeared for two weeks and she didn't deem it fit to report the case of a missing person to the police

However, in the instance of the crime committed, he was away for two days and they reported it to the police

Why can't they save the money for the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway which they now want to concession again?

Or isn't the Second Niger Bridge of any importance?

The LASG already has a design and framework for building this bridge

The impact assessment has been done and they are set to roll

If the FG is interested in the project, they should look for ways to partner with the LASG

And I strongly believe this is more of Politics than Engineering

The same Lagos-Ibadan whose contract was awarded with so much fanfare is now stalled and they say they are shopping for a N117bn investment from the private sector

This is the same path the bridge will tow should they start

Across Southern Nigeria, it's only in Yorubaland that these Fulanis have been dealt with mercilessly

The Ogun State Government had tried to come up with a peaceful means of resolving conflicts between the farmers and the herdsmen

However, it seems these herdsmen will not learn

They had better be guided by what happened to their kinsmen in Oyo and Kwara

By now they should know that only flatheaded farmers are the ones that flee and have never in their history stood up to any attack by the Fulanis. Never in their history

I think in their interest, they should desist from further attacks or the people may resort to defending themselves

It's obvious that even despoil and murder cases topped the list of crimes in Ekiti, almost all the states across the Niger each had despoil and murder cases higher than that of Ekiti

So the fact that kidnapping topped crimes in your state doesn't mean despoil and murder there are higher than Ekiti's
