AJimobi wants to generate N3.5 billion internally generated revenue next year.
Abiola Ajimobi, has appealed to citizens of the state not to despair in the face of the tottering economy. He assured residents that his administration has embarked on massive reengineering and restructuring that will soon take the state out of the woods.
The governor made the appeal when he addressed well-wishers at a thanksgiving service to commemorate his 66th birthday at the Government House Chapel, Ibadan yesterday.
At the event were the governor’s wife, Mrs. Florence Ajimobi, his children, family, friends and associates.
He told people of the state to expect dividends of the new efforts next year, which, he said would shore up the internally generated revenue from the current N1.2billion to N3.5billion.
Ajimobi said the pervading economic depression would bring out the best in him as an experienced manager of men and resources.
“I want to use this opportunity to assure our people that the government is doing everything possible to take the state out of its present financial challenges. The result will begin to manifest very soon. The economy of Oyo will be buoyant again. We have latent potential, which we are going to unleash.
“I make bold to say that in the next one year, our monthly Internally-Generated Revenue will move from N1.2billion to N3.5 billion. And, in the next two years, it will move up to N5 billion…”
