AJimobi wants to raise N3.5 billion internally generated revenue next year


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…”
