Adeosun: We’ll make every naira count without being a burden to Nigerians – The Cable

Kemi Adeosun, minister of finance, has assured Nigerians that the government’s revenue generation focus will not be a burden to Nigerians, but a drive that will make every naira count.

Adeosun said the collection of revenue for sustainable and economic growth of the country must be a collaborative effort of the three tier of government, reflecting that there is one Nigeria and not a federal, state, and local government.

The minister said this at a retreat themed: ‘Enhancing Revenue Generation For Sustainable Development’, which is being attended by representatives from Lagos, Kano, Jigawa, Edo states.

In her keynote address at the opening ceremony of a two-day national revenue retreat in Kano on Thursday, Adeosun said all revenue due to Nigeria’s government, irrespective of the source, will be collected with “high degree of efficiency, fully receipted and properly accounted for”.
