Kano State 2017 budget will be funded substantially through Internally Generated Revenue, IGR, to bridge the gap in its 2016 recurrent expenditure, the state governor, Abdullah Ganduje, has disclosed.

The state government noted that the target is to ensure that by the end of 2017, its budgetary expenditure is substantially covered by the internally generated revenue. “As this vision is actualised, a great percentage of the state government’s share from the federation account is to be lodged into Future Generation Account, which is to be deployed to provide qualitative education, infrastructure and better healthcare delivery services”, the governor asserted. Ganduje stated that the government is making the greatest effort to mobilise revenue in efforts to harasness the state potentials to improve condition of living, adding that, this became necessary in the face of paucity of revenue. He revealed that the state Internal Revenue Service has been re-organised and strengthened to attain the set out revenue generation target.
