The Kaduna State Internal Revenue Service (KDIRS) says the state has generated over N44 billion as Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) in 2019.
The Executive Chairman of the Service, Zaid Abubakar, made the disclosure while presenting the agency’s scorecard for the year at a news conference on Monday in Kaduna.
Mr Abubakar said the revenue generated surpassed the N43 billion target for the year by N1 billion.
He pointed out that this was the first time that the state met its revenue target and even surpassed it, describing the feat as “a new benchmark” for revenue collection in the state.
He attributed the achievement to the overwhelming support from Governor Nasir El-Rufa’i, the political will and free-hand accorded to the agency to do its job without interference.
