In a bid to boost the revenue base of the administration, Osun State Board of Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has retained 100 of its income marshals into the administration of the state.
The revenue board secured the endorsement of Governor Rauf Aregbesola in engrossing the income marshals into the administration of the state government.
The revenue marshals who were selected from all the local government of the state were recruited to assist the board in generating revenue for the state for its growth and developmental projects.
Addressing the newly recruited revenue staff at a 3-day intensive training programme held in Osogbo, the Board’s Director of Finance and Strategy, Mr. Oluyemi Oni, said the essence of the training was to give the newly employed tax marshals basic knowledge of revenue generation and tax assessment of the people.
He explained that those recruited were absorbed into grade levels 06 and 08 base on their educational qualifications adding that many of them were NCE, OND, HND, B.SCS and Master Degree holders.
Oni implored the beneficiaries to see the appointment as a call to service by living up to their responsibilities in making the state to realize its objectives on robust revenue generation.
