Accountant-General challenges law school on revenue generation for govt
The Accountant-General of the Federation (AGF), Ahmed Idris, has challenged the Nigerian Law School to contribute its Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) to the national purse.
The Accountant-General made the call in Abuja, when a delegation from the Nigerian Law School visited him.
He said that the Nigerian Law School should be able to contribute its quota no matter how meager to the national purse from where government funds its Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDA).
“From the revenue the Nigerian Law School is generating, are you contributing to the national purse? The little you contribute will help increase the revenue of government.
“The Nigerian Law School should contribute in its modest way by giving something back. The institution raises revenue, so something should be given back,” he said.
Responding to requests by the delegation, the AGF said the request for increased funding, capturing of the institution’s staff into the IPPIS platform and release of pending funds would be looked into and resolved.
He commended the delegation for the visit, which he said was the first by the management of the institution, and that this would cement the relationship between the institution and the Office of the Accountant-General of the Federation.
Earlier, the Director-General, Nigerian Law School, Isa Chiroma, informed the AGF of the challenges facing the institution and sought his assistance to resolve them.
Chiroma had among other things, requested for increased funding of the institution and integration of some staff recently employed by the institution into the IPPIS platform.
