Council inaugurates 8-man committee to boost revenue

27 September 2013, 16:39

Igarra - The Chairman, Akoko Edo Local Government Council in Edo, Folorunsho Akerejola, on Friday inaugurated an eight-man committee to boost the internal revenue generation capacity of the council.

Inaugurating the committee at the council's secretarial in Igarra, Akerejola mandated the committee to ensure that funds generated were used to execute projects that would benefit the people.

"My administration is determined to build a strong and viable economy that will stand the test of time.

"More commercial activities will soon be created to generate income, as well as provide job opportunities for the youth," he said.

Akerejola said the inauguration of six new Toyota  buses for transport business was part of the council's efforts to enhance its revenue generation capacity.

The chairman said the council decided to venture into the transportation business in order to boost its revenue.

Responding, the chairman of the committee, Godson Hayioye, assured that the body would work hard to increase the council's internally-generated revenue.

"All the revenue generated will be accounted for and used judiciously for the purposes intended," he added.
