Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, the governor of Enugu state, says the state is the only Nigerian state that can survive without allocations from the federation accounts allocations committee (FAAC).

The governor said this while speaking on Tuesday during the launch and public presentation of the revised Enugu state business agenda (SBA) which was introduced by the Enugu coalition of business and professional association (ECOBPA).

Ugwuanyi said when it comes to internally generated revenue, the state comes second place after Lagos.

“Our state is currently the only one in the country that survive without federal allocations. We pay our workers and pensioners as and when due,” NAN quoted Ugwuanyi, who was represented at the occasion by Simon Ortuanya, secretary to the state government, said.

He added also that revenue leakages have been blocked and that there are no longer issues of multiple taxation to encourage external investors.

Ugwuanyi stated also that the state government has taken note of some touts who extort money from business owners, saying those people do not have government backing.

He added also that Enugu had a unified accounting system with a central revenue account.
