Mr Arulogun pointed out that the Governor Ajimobi led administration “needs to strengthen its revenue base so as to meet up with its responsibilities to the people, while laws that are not aiding our IGR drive are also being redressed”.
“We feel the pain of our people, we know they are expecting us to deliver on our electoral promises. We know what they are going through because of the economic recession of the country. We cannot add to their pains with our own plans and that is why we are embarking on renewed IGR drive to block the loopholes affecting our internal income”.
