Obaseki removes supervision of revenue from Shaibu’s table

By DADA AYOKHAI

The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has directed that all revenue collection functions of Government will now come under the direct supervision of the Governor’s Office.

The supervision of the state revenue was formerly domiciled with the office of the deputy governor, comrade Philip shaibu.

The directive was contained in a Press statement issued by the Special Adviser, Media Projects, Crusoe Osagie

The statement said at the end of the month of June, 2023, the Governor’s Office reviewed the year-to-date revenue status of the government, showing that earnings fell under the N30bn target.

On account of that, the governor has queried all Permanent Secretaries and Heads of revenue generating agencies within government, including the Local Government Areas (LGAs), who have not met their mid-year target.

He has ordered that they are now to come under the direct supervision of the Governor’s Office to ensure the attainment of the N62b target at the end of the year.
