Gov. Ayodele Fayose’s Ekiti state is among states with the poorest Internally Generated Revenue profile for 2014 according to figures released yesterday by the National Bureau of Statistics.
The IGR made by the states excludes the monthly allocations, which they receive from the Federation Accounts Allocation Committee.
The six states with the lowest internal generated revenue are
Zamfara – N3.1bn
Ekiti – N3.4bn
Kebbi – N3.8bn
Nasarawa – N4.05bn
Bauchi – N4.8bn
Sokoto – N5.6bn
Niger – N5.7bn
However, 13 states are yet to submit their report to the NBS.
