We’ll Stop Salaries Of Non-Performing MDAs, Says Cross River State Government

In Breaking News, Business & Economy

By Ada Wodu, Punch Newspaper

Revenue-generating Ministries, Departments and Agencies in Cross River State which fail to meet their revenue targets will have their salaries withheld henceforth.

The Auditor-General and Acting Chairman of the Cross River State Internal Revenue Service, John Odey, disclosed this at a meeting with representatives of the MDAs in Calabar the State capital.

According to him, the measure became imperative given the alleged lackadaisical attitude of some MDAs concerning revenue generation.

He lamented the dwindling shortfall in revenue, describing it as “unacceptable as the Government now relies heavily on internally generated revenue to meet its financial obligations, especially payment of salaries.

“The essence of the meeting is to identify reasons for the dwindling revenue as well as rub minds on possible solutions to revenue increase in the State,” he added.

Odey said the decision to put salaries of defaulting MDAs on hold was not meant to make people suffer, but put people on their toes “so they could do the needful.”
