The Ekiti State House of Assembly on Thursday passed the State Board of Internal Revenue Bill 2019.
The House said that the bill became necessary as if eventually assented to by Governor Kayode Fayemi, would improve the internally generated revenue of the state.
The Assembly had during its last sitting adopted as working documents of the House the report of the Committee on Finance and Appropriation in respect of the Ekiti State Board of Internal Revenue Bill 2019 which was submitted by its Chairman and Lawmaker representing Emure Constituency, Hon. Bunmi Adelugba.
The Speaker, Rt. Hon. Funminiyi Afuye commended the Committee for doing a very good job on the Bill and put voice vote for its passage.
The need to rehabilitate lkole-Ara-Ijesa lsu Ekiti Roads and lkere-Ilawe Road took the centre stage on the floor of the House.
The Lawmakers took turns to commend government’s effort on road rehabilitation in the state and solicited government intervention on Ikole-Ara-Ijesa lsu Ekiti Road, lkere-Ilawe Road and other major roads in the state.
Afuye, however, said that the Governor Fayemi had promised to embark on massive road construction in October after the rainy season.
Members of the Assembly in a unanimous decision congratulated the new chairman of the Ekiti council of traditional rulers, the Alawe of Ilawe, Oba Adebanji Ajibade-Alabi.
