Governor Bago sacks all revenue collectors in Niger

AREWA AGENDA – Governor Umaru Bago has directed the immediate sack of all revenue collectors contracted by the Niger state ministries, agencies and departments.

This is contained in a statement by Abubakar Usman, the secretary to the state government (SSG) in Minna, on Thursday.

He said the disengagement aimed to ensure transparency, accountability and efficiency in revenue enforcement and collection in Niger.

”The measure is part of the broader efforts by the present administration to ensure a more organised and accountable revenue generation system that will foster sustainable economic growth in the state,” Mr Bago said.

The governor directed the affected organisations to immediately return official vehicles and relevant documents to the permanent secretary or the most senior director in the respective MDAs.
