          Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, has re-emphasised the need for various agencies of Government to improve on the Internally Generated Revenue drive without inconveniencing the people.
          The Governor disclosed this at the opening of the 2016 Budget Treasury Board Meeting held at Obas Complex, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta.
          According to him, the totality of what the 2016 Budget stands for depends on what the State was able to make of its IGR, by using the available resources to better the lots of the people.
          Senator Amosun charged all the concerned MDAs to carry the people along in whatever step they were taking to improve IGR, noting that the 2016 Budget would be people -oriented.  
          He directed both the political and career officers to ensure total blockage of leakages, loopholes, wastages and remit all monies to the appropriate Government coffers.
          ‘’I want you all to see the current financial challenges as opportunities to demonstrate your commitment and resilience in promoting and supporting Government’s policies and programmes”, Amosun said.
          Earlier, the Commissioner for Budget and Planning, Ms. Adenrele Adesina, appreciated all the Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) for their commitment to the Ogun State Project, noting that the 5-cardinal programmes of the Amosun-led administration remain the priority of Government.
           Adesina said that the statutory allocation was expected to confront challenges in the coming year, charging all MDAs to gear up their revenue to accelerate execution of the budget
