The Executive Chairman of Ondo State Internal Revenue Service (ODIRS), Mr Tolu Adegbie has expressed his readiness to bring the whole state into one central data bank to ensure smooth and efficient service delivery.
Adegbie stated this while delivering his keynote address during the fifth edition of the agency 2-day annual management retreat and strategy session 2023 with the theme “Year of Data and Dynamism” held at the agency headquarters, Revenue House, Akure, the state capital.
According to him, the purpose of the strategy session is to summarize the performances of the year 2022, the challenges encountered during the course of the year and to suggest solutions, plans and strategies on how to achieve set budget in the new year and also to ensure all departments and units key into the agenda of the new year; improve revenue generation and scale up productivity in 2023.
He therefore urged the participants and all members of staff to put all hands on deck towards actualizing the theme of the year, saying that data will be used to unleash full potentials of departments and units of the agency.
The ODIRS boss equally advised them to tailor their energy and actions towards achieving set budget for the new year.
Adegbie however thanked everyone for their active participation all through the sessions and implored all members of staff on the need to be extra ordinary in their performances, maintaining that the set targets for the new year are achievable.
Describing the strategy session as apt, the Senior Special Assistant to Mr. Governor on Revenue Mr. Femi Feyide said the sessions will enable staff to be duly charged and fully prepared for the new financial year.
Also speaking, the Managing Director of Canadian Software Development Consultant (CSDC) Mr Bayo Olabiyi, noted that data is an important thing that can serve as a Plan A for any organisation to move forward.
He spoke further that: “we can see the progress not only in revenue generation but in all areas of the service”, pledging maximum support from his agency towards ODIRS, saying that salient points raised about their operations have been painstakingly noted.
On his part, the Senior Special Assistant to Mr Governor on Finance and Investment, Mr Ebenezer Adekusibe appreciated the management of ODIRS, saying the service has been awesome in their activities and there is always room for improvement.
He charged the participants to take seriously all the things learnt in the course of the two-day strategy session and put into practice to enhance performance.
On his final remarks, Adegbie thanked everyone for their active participation all through the sessions and implored all members of staff on the need to be extra ordinary in their performances as there is no ambiguity in the set target this year that cannot be achieved.
The session had in attendance all the directorate heads, management staff, all heads of departments and all unit heads of the agency.
