Osinbajo advises states against raising IGR at all costs


Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo on Thursday advised state governments not to fall into the temptation to prioritise raising Internally Generated Revenue at all costs.

He said if such was done in a way that would stifle today’s entrepreneurs and investors, there would be a great price to pay later.

Osinbajo said this in his keynote address at the Leadership Newspapers Awards and Conference 2017, with the theme, ‘Towards financially viable state governments’.
