Iya while giving his report told the House that out of the over N60 billion for the fiscal year, about N42 billion is for statutory allocation.

The lawmaker stated that over N3 billion is for the Value Added Tax, VAT, about N4 billion is for 10% state allocation just as over N1 billion is for Internally Generated Revenue, IGR.

He, in spite of that, noted, “Due to the dwindling nature of the national economy which has resulted in the fall of allocation to the various levels of government, many of the local government councils in the state still remain in deficit and cannot even pay hundred percent salary”.
