Lagos, Rivers lead in internally-generated revenue, Osun is 11th

The National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) has released the amount of money each state of the federation is collecting as Internally Generated Revenue ( IGR).

The release came against the backdrop of non-payment of salaries in most of the states, a development the state governors attributed to paucity of funds.

In the document entitled 'Details of Internally Generated Revenue in States' released on Wednesday by the NBS, it showed Lagos State collecting N276,163,978,675.95 in fiscal 2014 as against N384,259,410,959.19 collected in 2013 to lead other 22 states which records of IGR were released.

Rivers State followed Lagos with IGR of N89,112,448,347.58 in 2014 compared with N87,914,415,268.80 collected in 2013 fiscal year.
Delta State came third with IGR of  N42,819,209,025.24 in 2014 as against N50,208,229,986.91 for 2013 while Ekiti and Zamfara states were those with lowest IGR.
While Ekiti collected IGR of N3,462,341,448.32 in 2014, Zamfara received IGR of N3,147,630,553.96 for the same period.
