The Executive Chairman Ojokoro Local Council Development Area, Hon Hameed Idowu Tijani (HID) has enjoined council officials and participants at the 2017 mid year budget appraisal to cooperate with his administration, by remitting every penny paid by taxpayers into the Council’s account.
Tijani noted that his administration’s resolve, is to provide the dividends of democracy to residents and also to fulfill the promises made during the electioneering campaign.
In his keynote address, he maintained that the essence of the appraisal, was to apperceive of how the internally generated revenue of the LCDA could be improved upon and to extend the council’s tax net to capture revenue sources yet to be tapped,so as to seamlessly block all leakages and shortfalls.
The Chairman however, made emphasis on the need for the revenue officers and other participants to bring forth ideas and innovations that will take the LCDA to the next level.
