The Federal Capital Territory Internal Revenue Service (FCT-IRS) has restated its commitment to support relevant agencies of the Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) to boost revenue generation in the territory.

The agency’s acting executive chairman, Haruna Abdullahi, said this while handing over office furniture and desk computers to the Department of Development Control in Abuja.

Felix Obua, the coordinator of the Abuja Metropolitan Management Council, handed over the items.

Mr Abdullahi said discussions had been ongoing with the Development Control regarding how the service could support them in enhancing their operations and further strengthening the collaboration between the two organisations.

While receiving the items, the AMMC coordinator commended the FCT-IRS for the kind gesture. He pledged to continue working in synergy with the service to enhance revenue generation in Abuja.

Mr Abua said he was delighted to receive the FCT-IRS team and was also happy to partner the FCT Tax Authority.

According to him, donating the items will go a long way in making their work easier.

Also speaking, the director of the Department of Development Control, Mukhtar Galadima, said with the new leadership they currently have, he was certain that the revenue generation would be boosted.

According to him, there are a lot of untapped resources at the satellite towns in the FCT that needed to be harnessed.

“They have been challenged in terms of human and technological resources. With a collaboration like this, it will help in no small measure to boost their revenue and by extension enhance the revenue of the territory,” he said.
