Osun IGR Improves By 52 Per Cent

IGR

When we hail Governor Oyetola and his economic team for the good work they are doing in ensuring Osun is placed on comfortable financial pedestal so the government can finance its laudable plans, cynics and naysayers think it is an empty claim aimed at burnishing the governor’s brand. But facts don’t lie.

Osun under Oyetola is daily recognised for serious work and breaking boundaries. The statistics released by the National Bureau of Statistics yesterday, 08 November 2021, indicates Osun IGR leaped to N13.6bn in the 1st Half( H1) of 2021 from N8.9bn in the 1st Half( H1) of 2020. That is an increase of N4.7bn ( 52% improvement). Remember the yearly IGR as at 2018 when Oyetola came on board was N10bn. So what Aregbesola made in yearly IGR was what Oyetola made in just first 6 months of 2021. Remarkable. If this is maintained, there is plausibility that Osun IGR will scale to N27bn for 2021. And to have a better control of finance and fund government expenses excellently, it is estimated that Osun must generate N36bn in yearly IGR. I have more hope that this is achievable even before 2023.

This is good news we get each day that makes us continue to support the exemplary leadership of Governor Gboyega Oyetola, the financial encyclopedia. We will not relent in our support for his administration no matter the bile and curses the enemies of progress daily heap on us.
