IGR: Edo govt tasks MDAs on automation

The Edo State Government has tasked Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) to key into the automated Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) system now operational in the state.

The charge was given by the Head of Service, Anthony Okungbowa Esq, at a two-day training workshop on Electronic Treasury Receipt and MDA Certificate Approval, organized by the Edo State Internal Revenue Service (EIRS) for Permanent Secretaries, Directors and Heads of Revenue drawn from various MDAs in Edo State.

Okungbowa, who was represented by Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Environment, Mr. Lucky Wasa, stated: “Edo State Government is ensuring that all MDAs key into the automation programme that will no doubt curb leakages in IGR collection.”

Okungbowa commended the efforts of the EIRS for keeping up to pace with the global trends in revenue administration.

Executive Chairman Edo State Internal Revenue Service, (EIRS), Igbinidu Inneh said the system was conceived to enable government to electronically track transactions with individuals and organizations, particularly as it relates to government applications and approvals.

He noted that this was to ensure that officials of government comply with the relevant tax laws to avoid being sanctioned.

Other benefits of the electronic treasury receipts and MDA certificate approvals include the issuance of verifiable electronic documents, as well as realtime reporting of all MDA transactions, amongst others.
