Residents of Edo State have applauded governor Godwin Obaseki’s approval for the deployment of tech based revenue collection scheme to automate and boost Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) in the state.The residents including traders, commercial vehicle operators, business owners, among others, who spoke to journalists said that the use of technology based revenue collection scheme will ease payment of taxes, levies and other charges paid to the government. The chairman, Edo Internal Revenue Service, Mr Igbinidu Inneh recently said that the technology driven scheme will automate revenue collection process from data capture, profiling, assessment generation and notification to cashless settlement, adding it will make way for deployment of persons to serve as distributors, sub distributors, retailers, and enumerators across the 192 wards in the state. It is expected to create 5,000 jobs within the state.

A commercial vehicle operator in Benin City, Edo State capital, Ikponmwosa Daniel said the state government’s decision to automate revenue collection was a smart move, adding, “if I can use a card to pay my daily levies automatically, that will help a lot”. Christian Okojie, a commercial vehicle operator who plies Benin-Auchi route, said, “our governor has continued to bring appreciable changes in how things are done in the state. This technology based revenue collection system will put a stop to multiple taxation”.
