Lagos, Rivers states Run Nigeria's IGR

Launch of Lagos Public Transit Payment System - Tekedia

Lagos and Rivers states continue to run the top table when it comes to internally generated revenue. Nigerian "States generated N1.09 trillion from taxes in the year 2020, accounting for 83.3% of the total IGR received in the year. Lagos State recorded the highest Internally Generated Revenue of N418.99 billion, accounting for 32.1% of the total and closely followed by Rivers State with N117.19 billion", Nairametrics reports.

Aside from the fact that each of this states can generate more than, nobody is asking the right question. Where is Kogi on this list, with the abundance of resource deposited there they should not even be on the same level of Lagos. That is not forgetting Benue, who claims to be the food basket of the nation, Ekiti that has littered with Professor- "Sheybi" KNOWLEDGE is the driver of wealth. We need to start putting pressure on each of the states and stop becoming too comfortable with states dancing to Abuja, as though their brains are on suspension.

The best pressure would be political pressure which is being voted and being voted out under free and fair elections.
