Wike takes charge of revenue drive in Rivers State
Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers says he is now in charge of revenue drive in the state. The governor explained that under the current economic climate, the state government cannot continue to rely on the federation account, hence the need to enhance revenue generation.
Speaking on Tuesday at the Government House, Port Harcourt during a meeting with hotel owners in the state, the governor said his decision to personally supervise revenue generation followed the determination of his administration to continue the execution of projects across the state.
According to Wike: “I am now fully in charge of revenue drive in the state. The aim is to make the environment conducive for businesses to thrive.”
He accused some hotel owners of conniving with agents of the state government to commit revenue fraud.
