Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has disclosed that the State Government will soon commence the operation of Treasury Single Account to enhance its revenue base.

Wike also charged the Rivers Internal Revenue Service (RIRS) to grow the State’s Monthly Internally Generated Revenue to N10billion.

The Governor made this disclosure on Thursday during the Flag Off of Informal Sector Tax Drive with vehicles donated by Access Bank Limited at the Government House Port Harcourt.

According to him; “We will initiate the Treasury Single Account to block Revenue Leakages. I assure that very soon the Treasury Single Account will become operational.

“The Treasury Single Account will be implemented to checkmate what is presently going on. It is not good to have several accounts which lead to unnecessary Leakages.

“Our revenue base fluctuates. The Board has been directed to expedite action for the state to hit N10BILLION internally generated revenue every month.”

Governor Wike further assured that the Treasury Single Account will be diligently implemented in the interest of Rivers State.

He said that his allegiance is to Rivers people who voted him , because he was not sponsored by any group.

He urged the informal sector to support the Rivers State Government by paying their taxes as prescribed by the Rivers Internal Revenue Service (RIRS).

“The drive for informal sector tax is key. I believe it will boost our revenue base and we need it”, he said.

He thanked Access Bank Limited for supporting the Revenue Drive of the state with the donation of 10 buses.

Chairman of Rivers State Internal Revenue Service (RIRS), Mr Adoage Norte said that the flag off of the informal sector tax drive will ensure that informal sector entrepreneurs pay their taxes.

He said that at present the informal sector has not been paying taxes. He said that the Flag Off will unlock the tax potentials of the informal sector.

Norte lauded Access Bank Plc for supporting the informal tax drive of the Rivers State Internal Revenue Service with the donation of 10 buses. He said the buses will be used across the state.

He added that the Service is also in dire need of branded kiosks for point of sales transactions.

He suggested the operation of Treasury Single Account to optimize revenue generation in the state.

Representative of Managing Director of Access Bank Plc, Mr David Tinad thanked the Rivers State Government for the opportunity to partner on revenue generation.

He assured the Rivers State Government that Access Bank Plc will continue to support efforts by the State Government to improve its revenue base.
