Nigeria Governors’ Forum kicks-Off Its 2017 IGR Peer Learning Event Monday
As part of its strategic mandate to improve fiscal governance at the subnational level, the Nigeria Governors’ Forum Secretariat (NGFS) will kick-off its annual IGR Peer Learning Event tomorrow Monday, 30th October 2017 at Sheraton Hotel, Abuja.
The event which will host all Commissioners of Finance of the 36 States and Chairmen of States’ Boards of Internal Revenue will provide a platform to share practical and effective measures of boosting revenue generation, assimilate and share knowledge resources to guide the implementation of needed reforms and identify priority areas for technical assistance from the NGF’s IGR HelpDesk.
This event will be hosted alongside some development partners who have shown keen interest in raising the revenue status of states.
The programme will also leverage on recommendations of the federal government’s fiscal sustainability plan, and decisions reached by the Joint Tax Board (JTB).
The NGFS only last week concluded a conference of media handlers of states’ chief executives which has been adjudged by many to have been very successful.
