Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki on Monday
swore in the new Chairman and members of the board of the Edo Internal
Revenue Service (EIRS) at The Government House in Benin City.

 
Governor
Obaseki, congratulating them on the appointment, charged them to be
professional and meet up with budgeted revenue targets.
 
He
said that one of the challenges of previous boards was inability to
meet budgeted revenue targets noting that it would not be accepted
anymore. 
 
He
commended the immediate former Chairman and members of the board for
the level of patriotism and professionalism displayed during their
tenure.
 
Meanwhile, the governor also called on the new board members to build on the already established benchmark of their predecessor.
 
“You
are the calibre of people we can vouch for in terms of integrity and
professionalism. We want you to help deepen the tax collection and
administration system in the state via high standards, but be humane to
people in the state”, he said.
 
He also urged them to adopt the right technology and be prudent in spending to ensure effective performance of the board.
 
In
his response, the Chairman, Mr Igbinidu Inneh, appreciated the governor
for the opportunity given to him and other members of the board to
oversee revenue collection in the state.
 
Inneh also praised his predecessor and former members of the board for repositioning the revenue service in the state.
 
He promised that the new board would live up to its expectations, be accountable and sustain taxpayers’ confidence.
 
He
said that the board would execute its task with six principles: legal
and regulatory, availability of data, human capital capacity, technology
selection, Enlightenment and social inclusion and value for money for
optimal performance.
 
Other
members of the board are Mr Charity Aimamyaevbo, Mr Emmanuel Okodugha,
Hon Micheal Ohio-Ezomo and Mr Efe Iserhienrhien as secretary.
