From Dauda Iliya (Borno)
Borno state government has streamlined the revenue collection of twenty one government agencies.
This was in an effort to block leakages, ensure transparency in line with Borno state Transparency, Accountability and Sustainability Program-SFTAS.
In a statement by the Chairman, Internal Revenue Service, Alhaji Mohammed Alkali said all other Ministries, Departments and Agencies that have not been enrolled would soon be captured into the system.
The statement adds that some of the agencies to be captured include public secondary schools, hospitals, clinics and other public corporations owned by the state and twenty seven local government areas.
“The Borno state Internal Revenue Service would stop at nothing until all the remaining un-enrolled are made to go live on the Unified Revenue Collection System in line with SFTAS which Borno state has signed into with federal government and World Bank in 2019”.
The Service assured that no agency would be exempted from being part of the system for optimal performance.
