With poor revenue from the Federation Account, Kwara government has looked inward as it now realises a sum of N1.5 billion monthly from internally generated revenue (IGR) drive.

Governor AbdulFatah Ahmed disclosed this at the Annual Lecture of the Third-Estate Forum which held in llorin, Kwara state.

He said the state government had improved its revenue drive by blocking all revenue leakages to de-emphasise dependence in monthly allocation from the Federal Account.

The Governor said the state which was formally realising N500 million can now boast of N1.5 billion monthly.

The governor said his administration had put mechanism in place through revenue generation to address the problems.

He said his administration was also taking conscious efforts to address salary problems in the local government councils and tertiary institutions in the state.

He disclosed that government had concluded arrangement to cultivate 10, 000 hectares of land for rice, maize, cassava and soya beans production across the 16 local government areas.

President of Third Estate, Dr. Yusuf Lawal, said the deepening economy crisis remained the greatest worry to the club because the social value of the community was being threatened.

Guest speakers at the event, Engr. Tunde Yusuf, an industrialist, Tunde Salami, bank executive and Mr. Ibrahim Adebayo, a Director in Public service decried extreme level of poverty in the country which they attributed to consumption without production.

The speakers jointly agreed on the need for harnessing the potential of agriculture and urged governments at all levels to provide enabling environment for private investments to flourish.

Other state governments that depend on federal allocation and are too lazy to do anything should visit Kwara state government, Lagos state government so as to find out how they can generate internally generated revenue for their states
