Kogi State Internal Revenue Service (KGIRS) has recorded a growth of N300 million in the revenue generation of the state in the first quarter of 2019, Concise News reports.

The Executive Chairman, Aliyu Inda Salami, who disclosed this in Lokoja during a two-day retreat to equip staff of the organization, said the effort was geared towards increasing the IGR of the state to N3 billion monthly.

He said the feat was made possible as a result of the recent operational restructuring in the service which focused on effective and efficient revenue collections.

Salami admonished the staff to be open-minded at receiving and implementing the nuggets from the retreat as they would be “Change Agents’’ in their individual job responsibilities and be held accountable for their performances.
