Taraba Dep Gov. Garba-Umar

Taraba State Acting Governor Garba Umar, has given his commissioners an improve your IGR or get sacked threat.The acting governor who set the target for all Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) in the state to increase revenue generation, threatened heads of MDAs that fail to meet the targets with sack.

He said “I have given commissioners targets to meet in raising the revenue profile of the various MDAs under them and if they do not meet the target we will simply shake hands.”

Umar who disclosed this after signing the 2013 appropriation act into law yesterday in Jalingo, the state capital, said the renewed IGR drive for the MDAs became necessary in order to meet the challenge of financing a deficit-free budget.

He further  explained that the 2013 budget which amounted to N73.4 billion, was less than the 2012 budget by about N400million because internally generated revenue of the state was very low while the state must avoid a deficit budget.

Umar had presented a budget of N73.4 billion to the state House of Assembly, with recurrent expenditure taking N38.8bn while N34.5bn was earmarked for capital expenditure.
