Let the masses benefit from IGR, Olumide Jones Tells Abiodun


A PDP chieftain in the People Democratic Party ( PDP) Hon. Olumide Jones has adviced the Governor of Ogun State Prince Dapo Abiodun to let the masses benefit from the high internally Generated Revenue (IGR) of the state as claimed by the Government.

Jones disclosed this in a statement which was made available to newmen  in Abeokuta Ogun state Capital.

The philantrophist and Entrepreneur specialist said that in a situation whereby a state generates Billions of Naira internally,it's just natural that the effect should be seen on the masses through economic and social-economic growth of the state.

Ogun state now generates over 8billion monthly according to the Government sources, then the state should have witnessed more growth both infrastructural and in every other area.

"But the reverse is the case in Ogun state as bad and uncompleted roads are seen all over the state with no specific economic growth.

He  urged the Government to sincerely use the funds to alleviate poverty and develop the state infrastructurally.

"It's a good thing to generate enough money but its usage should be in the best interest of the masses and people of the state that entrust their resources in care of the government he said.

"When PDP was governing the state with little resources,all the arms of Government enjoy the benefit of democracy and growth in all areas of governance, in Academics, Agriculture, sports,youth and women empowerment and other areas but reverse is the case with the present Government where the IGR now runs into billions.

He therefore appealed to the Government to use the resources very well, ensuring all round growth.
