The Enugu State Government on Thursday said it raised N18 billion as Internally Generated Revenue(IGR) in 10 months. Gov. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi made the disclosure while inaugurating the Enugu State Internal Revenue Service (ESIRS) building. He attributed the improvement of the IGR profile to the introduction of the Treasury Single Account (TSA) collection system.
“Our collection in terms of IGR increased from N14 billion in 2016 to N18 billion within the first 10 months of 2017,’’ he said. The governor, who also inaugurated the first stage of the ESIRS automation project, released five operational vehicles and two motorcycles to the service. He said that implementation of the TSA and other measures in the last 18 months was responsible for the tremendous increase in the state IGR profile.
