Agbo disbands Igbo-Etiti Council revenue collection agents

The Caretaker Committee Chairman of Igbo Etiti Local Government Area of Enugu State, Mr. Malachy Agbo, has disbanded all revenue-collecting agents and committees engaged by the council to collect revenues on its behalf, ITRealms reports.

The Chairman made this known on Monday at the council headquarters, Ogbede and directed all the committees, agents and any other such persons previously working for and on behalf of the council in this regard to stop forthwith.  

Also, Agbo assured to plug all leakages in the system and shore up the Council's revenue base by creatively exploring other tenable sources to generate funds hitherto neglected. 

He said these actions became imperative in view of the bad economic weather the country was experiencing in the wake of dwindling oil revenue which has left the three tiers of government gasping for survival.

He frowned at the indiscipline that characterised the collection of the Council's revenues by the agents.

He said if there is accountability and transparency in collection of the revenues, though small, it will go a long way in the running of the council.

Agbo also said, the move was in line with the vision and programmes of the present administration of Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, which anchors on prudence, fiscal discipline and imaginative resource management designed to lift the state up economically. 

As said by Agbo, he would ensure the real dividends of democracy got down to the people to positively touch their lives during these challenging times.
