    Companies and individuals in Kwara State have been urged to pay their taxes promptly to enable the government provide more social amenities that would better
    the lot of the citizenry.

    The Executive Chairman of the Kwara State Internal Revenue Service (KWIRS), Mrs Shade Omoniyi, made this appeal in Ilorin, the state capital, while playing host to the Chairman and board members of the Kwara State Television Authority (KWTV).

    The KWTV board members were on a courtesy visit to the State Revenue House as part of their interaction with critical stakeholders in the Kwara project.

    The KWIRS boss said: “With more revenue coming into government coffers, there would be fair, just and equitable distribution of the dividends of democracy, thereby uplifting the critical mass of our people from poverty, deprivation and want.”

    She commended the AbdulRazaq administration for committing huge resources in upgrading the three state-owned media houses, while also lauding the board, management and staff of KWTV for improving the output of the state-owned television station.

    The Chef Tax Officer expressed delight at the cordial working relationship and synergy between the revenue agency and KWTV, particularly in the areas of advocacy and sensitization.

    Earlier, the Chairman of KWTV board, Hameed Adio, had extolled the unique role being played by KWIRS in enhancing and consolidating the state revenue base, without which attempts at development would have been a mirage.

    He commended the management and staff of the revenue agency for being corporate, smart and business like in their approach to work.

    Hameed Adio also noted that the revenue agency, under the watch of Mrs Omoniyi, has performed tremendously well in generating revenue for the government, expressing the hope that the relationship between KWIRS and KWTV would continue to wax stronger.
