  • Governors advise Pres Buhari to diversify in order to boost internally generated revenue
  • The Nigeria Governors Forum, NGF, said that diversification would help boost the Internally Generated Revenue, IGR, base of the country.
    Speaking in Abuja at the beginning of a two-day Internally Generated Revenue workshop organised by the NGF, Chairman of the forum and governor of Zamfara State,  Abdul’aziz Yari, said:

    “Economic diversification is vital to ensuring the long-term economic growth we seek. We must ensure that we are competitive in the way we diversify our economy, and ensure that the private sector plays a stronger role going forward. This event should guide our states to share practical and effective experiences for boosting revenue generation and also provide strategies to kick-start the process.”
    Yari, who was represented by Kano State governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, stressed that Nigeria’s economic challenges could be overcome when the leaders make conscious efforts “to do the right thing at the right time.”

    The NGF chairman said members have agreed to adopt the findings of the summit as an important action plan for ensuring a more robust internally generated revenue base for states, adding:
    “We will also expect periodic briefings from our secretariat on the status of these plans and how our states have been able to implement them.”
