The Edo State Governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki, has directed that all revenue collection functions of the state government should now come under the direct supervision of his office.
This was contained in a statement signed by the Special Adviser to the governor on media project, Crusoe Osagir on Tuesday.
The statement reads, “Governor Godwin Obaseki has directed that all revenue collection functions of government will now come under the direct supervision of the Governor’s Office.
“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,” the statement added.
