Lagos IGR Now Higher Than 33 States Put Together

The internally generated revenue (IGR) of Lagos state rose by approximately N33 billion from 2015 to 2016, beating 33 states put together.

According to a report by the Nigeria Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (NEITI), the state recorded an IGR of N301.19 billion, a rise of N32.99 billion in one year.

The total IGR from 33 states of the federation, excluding Delta, Ogun and Rivers states stood at N299billion, whis is over one Billion Naira less than Lagos IGR.

Delta, Ogun and Rivers raked in N44.89 billion, N56.30 billion and N82.10 billion respectively.

Like his predecessors, Bola Tinubu and Babatunde Fashola, Akinwunmi Ambode, governor of Lagos state, has at various times committed himself to increasing IGR in the state.

  4. Osanobua!!!! Lagos is a state within a state. We expect to see accelerated development in the next the years. Good roads, modern and well-equiped hospitals, water for all, effective policing of the communities and improved electricity supplies to consumers and peaceful coexistence of lagosians. Anything short of this will not be acceptable to the people of the state
