Olaleye who stated that both agencies were working towards generating revenue for national development, added that the step would bring revenue leakages to the barest minimum.

"We are all in the same area of operation; it is a matter of somebody being sub-national and another at the national. There is no issue of either one being inferior or otherwise", he said.

He pledged OGIRS’ robust relationships with agencies, in order to serve as a catalyst in the drive to increase revenue generation for the country.

On her part, Director, Other Taxes, OGIRS, Mrs. Oluyomi Dawodu, commended the team for the visit, saying Ogun would leverage on the collaboration, to improve revenue generated into government coffers.
