According to a statement issued and signed by the Special Adviser, Media Projects, Crusoe Osagie, the decision is based on the earnings fell under the N30bn target.

The statement reads in part: “The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has directed that all revenue collection functions of Government will now come under the direct supervision of the Governor’s Office.

“At the end of the month of June, 2023, the Governor’s Office reviewed the year-to-date revenue status of the government, showing that earnings fell under the N30bn target.

“On account of that, the governor has queried all Permanent Secretaries and Heads of revenue generating agencies within government, including the Local Government Areas (LGAs), who have not met their mid-year target.

“He has ordered that they are now to come under the direct supervision of the Governor’s Office to ensure the attainment of the N62b target at the end of the year.”
