Edo State governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki, has said the improved method of revenue collection initiated by his administration will ensure Oredo local government area generates as much as N250 million monthly from 2018.
The governor stated this on Sunday at Urhokpota Hall, during his thank-you-visit at Oredo local government area, Benin City.
He noted that, in the last one year, revenue generation in the council has improved from N4 million monthly to N37 million as at October 2017.
He added that such increase would translate to more development and opportunities for the people of the council and the state at large.
Obaseki, commended the council for keying into the ‘Keep Edo Clean Project’, noting that Oredo is the heart of the state and would be supported to attract more investments. He urged the council to be receptive to change, which has become necessary, given the current economic situation in the country.
He noted that the reconstruction of Benin Science and Technical College, will be ready by May 2018, and explained that several ongoing projects in Benin City will impact on the council positively.
Earlier in his opening remarks, the All Progressives Congress (APC) chairman in Oredo, Godwin Alabi, welcomed the governor and thanked him for his several transformational programmes, which impacts are being felt within the city.
Also present at the event were the deputy governor, Rt. Hon. Philip Shaibu, secretary to Edo State Government, Osarodion Ogie Esq., Edo State APC chairman, Mr Anselm Ojezua, special adviser to the Governor on Political and Community Matters, Chief Osaro Idah, party leaders, among others.
