Kano IGR Hits N2b Monthly, Says Chairman

The Kano State Government says its Internally Generated Revenue has hit over N2 billion monthly because of an improved collection system.

The Chairman of the Kano State Internal Revenue Service, Alhaji Sani Dambo, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Thursday in Kano.

Dambo said the improvement was as a result of economic measures adopted by the state government in order to reduce dependence on the monthly revenue from the Federation Account.

“There is need for diversification. We should go toward alternative forms of revenue generation instead of depending on the dwindling oil revenue,” he said
Dambo said the increase manifested since the inception of Governor Abdullahi Ganduje’s administration in the state.

He said: “We have really improved on our IGR since the assumption of office of this present government.

“Since the restructuring of the KIRS, our IGR has improved from less than N1 billion to between N2.2 billion to N2.3 billion monthly and we are making efforts to surpass this achievement.”

Dambo said the service targets N10 billion before the end of the year and had also initiated measures to block all leakages for better results to enable the government meet its responsibilities.

He called on the people of the state to pay their taxes to help the government honour its commitment to the people.

He also warned that the service would not hesitate to prosecute any individual or corporate organisation that failed to pay taxes to the state.
