Okorocha inaugurates committee to boost IGR


Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State on Tuesday in Owerri inaugurated a five-man committee to boost the state’s internally generated revenue (IGR).

Inaugurating the committee, Okorocha charged it to closely monitor activities of the state’s revenue collection agencies.

He also charged the members to monitor activities of the agencies to make sure the government received the money they realise.

The governor decried what he described as the under performance of internally generated revenue managers in the state over the years.

He said that it had become necessary to adopt new strategies in revenue collection to create healthy competition and stimulate economic growth.
