This was disclosed during the service’s 2022 quarterly (January-March) performance review meeting held by the management of EIRS on Thursday.
Speaking at meeting, Inegbedion expressed appreciation to the Ministries of Physical Planning, Urban and Regional Development, and Education as well as Edo Geographical Information Service (Edo-GIS), for the collaboration that yielded improvement in their collections.
Hon. Inegbedion equally charged zonal and branch managers and other staff of the service for their dedication and efforts at achieving the feat and sued for its growth.

Recall that at the last quarterly performance review meeting of 2021 and on assumption of office as Chairman of IGR Taskforce, Hon. Inegbedion, was charged by Governor Obaseki to champion a robust revenue administration for the state in line with budgetary provisions.
