“REDOUBLE YOUR EFFORTS IN REVENUE GENERATION”, MUKADAM ASIWAJU CHARGES KGIRS STAFF
_By Muhammad Mukhtar Idris_
The Chairman, Interim Management Committee of Kogi State Internal Revenue Service, who doubles as the Commissioner for Finance, Budget and Economic Planning, Honourable Mukadam Asiwaju Asiru Idris, has lauded the commitment, dedication and hard work of the leadership and Staff of Lokoja I Area Tax Office of the Service in tax collection.
Hon. Asiwaju gave the commendation on Monday, 12th of October, 2020, when he paid a courtesy visit to the revenue office in Lokoja, Kogi State.
He urged the Staff to redouble their efforts to expand the collection base of the Service thereby boosting the IGR of the State, assuring that the likely challenges hindering their performance will be addressed as soon as possible.
The Interim Chairman, however, cautioned the Staff against ineptness to duty, noting that the Management will not tolerate lack of commitment from the Staffers, adding that the organisation is already engaging in ways to work out rewards for Staffers who are diligent to their duties through promotions and other incentives.
He thanked the Staff for their usual cooperation and understanding and urged them to be more committed in discharging their duties and responsibilities in tax collection.
The Area Tax Manager, Ibraheem Abdulazeez, who received the Committee Chairman, commended him and other members of the Committee for their efforts aimed at repositioning the Service.
He explained the state of dilapidation of offices in the Area, stressing that it has retarded the performance of staff in revenue generation.
He noted that most of the offices lack basic items such as tables, chairs, air conditioners and television, lamenting that the office building is almost pulling down as a result of several crevices on the wall.
Ibraheem Abdulazeez appealed to the Interim Chairman to help look into the condition of Lokoja I Area Tax Office as it is a clear evidence that some of the facilities which can enhance staff performance are lacking in the Office.
Responding to the appeals put forward by the Area Tax Manager, the Interim Committee Chairman promised to attend to the needs of the office with a view to enhance their performance in revenue generation.
