Anambra can generate N10b IGR monthly – Ezeudu




LAWMAKER, representing Dunukofia State Constituency, in the House of Assembly, Lawrence Chukwuweike Ezeudu, has said that Anambra State can make  N10b Internally Generated Revenue(IGR) every month, if Governor Charles Chukwuma Soludo introduces what he described as hygiene in the polity.

  Ezeudu, who stated this shortly after Tuesday’s  legislative session, explained that judging from the gross domestic products of the state, N10b monthly IGR is feasible, if hygiene is introduced in all facets of government and governance.

  He said hygiene meant accountability, financial prudence, probity, transparency, due process, requisite competence and capacity and rule of law contrary to fraud, mediocrity and nepotism.

  Ezeudu, who told our correspondent that in as much as he wouldn’t want to be seen as a rabble-rouser, he believes that Governor Soludo is putting Anambra State on a good trajectory judging from the indices of development on ground.

  The two-term legislator said that the governor is not a magician as he needs very competent people to work with him to realise his vision of a liveable, loveable and prosperous homeland habitable for all and sundry.

  He therefore stressed the need for Governor Soludo to synergise with the 8th legislature, the judiciary and also empower the third tier of government by conducting a credible and transparent local government election in order to decentralise political and governmental powers.

  Ezeudu maintained that a better Anambra may not be possible without the conduct of local government election and that the governor must strive to sanitise the polity, as well as ensure the enthronement of hygiene in the politics of the state and block all loopholes and leakages in revenue generation so as to upscale the IGR base for government to function optimally.
