The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Uche Secondus has begged the Federal Government, governors and Local Government Area chairmen to manage resources well to meet the needs of the people.
According to him, increasing internally generated revenue only cannot tackle Nigeria’s developmental needs.
Uche Secondus, represented by the PDP’s National Financial Secretary, Abdulahi Maibasira, said this during the 2019 internally generated revenue summit organized by the PDP Governors Forum in Abuja. It was titled, “The Imperatives of Developing Internally Generated Revenue Options for State Governments in a Recessed Economy.”
His words, “The myriad of problems facing the country, like poor infrastructure, poverty and the likes, necessitate the need for more sources of fund. But increased IGR may not solve the problem. The best way to do this is to be prudent in the management of resources. There must be a cut down in waste to be able to prepare for tomorrow.”
