To Shore up IGR, Oyo Begins Enumeration of Properties


By Adeola Oladele

In a bid to shore up its Internally Generated Revenue, the Oyo State government has embarked on enumeration of all properties in the 33 local government areas of the state.

The government has been complaining about paucity of funds owing to persistent reduction in its allocation from the Federation Account.

Governor Abiola Ajimobi commenced his administration’s aggressive revenue drive with a call on its commissioners and political appointees to begin to pay their property tax.


In a statement by the Commissioner for Lands Housing and Urban Development, Hon. Ajiboye Omodewu, the state government said the enumeration would help the government to have a comprehensive Property Data Base of all commercial, educational, health institutions, industrial and residential properties.

The statement added that the government officials in the 33 local government areas would soon commence the identification and enumeration of all properties under the supervision of Ministry of Lands, Housing and Urban development.

The statement further urged members of the public to cooperate with these officials, saying that the action would be beneficial to all and sundry.
