All is now set in the State of Osun to shore up its Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) to a benchmark of N2 billion monthly.
The newly appointed Special Adviser (SA) to the state Governor on Tax Matters, Barrister Oluwagbenga Akano made this known while addressing press men immediately after a meeting held with the staff of Osun Internal Revenue Service (OIRS) at the Ministry of Finance Hall, Abeere.
Akano said that N2 billion was the benchmark to go with and this was achievable monthly with the survey done so far on the state’s IGR sources.
He therefore called on all heads of departments and units under the Agency to re-double their efforts in making sure that all the potential tax payers in the state are brought into the tax net.
He equally enjoined the people of the state especially tax payers to see tax payment as a clarion call for every taxable adult to obey.
According to him, these are the resources needed by the government to fulfill its promises to the people of the state.
