Less than a week after offering to help “reduce” the price of forex, Mr Ifeanyi Ubah has explained that he has a plan to increase Nigeria’s internally generated revenue (IGR) by 30 per cent.
Ubah, who is the Chairman, Capital Oil and Gas Limited said in a press statement that:
“We have designed two templates/systems on how Nigeria’s Internally Generated Revenue can be grown by 30 per cent guarantee. However, we have decided to push our concepts and strategies out in phases. This will come in the next phase of our intervention scheme. I leave this in the hands of Nigerians and for posterity to judge.”
But his major grouse is with the Nigerian government that has yet to approach him, despite offering to render a service to the country since over a week.
According to Ubah:
“My pertinent question remains: If the current leadership really cares about Nigeria and Nigerians, why haven’t sincere efforts been made to curb this menace? I have volunteered to serve and vowed to commit everything I have and possess to the success of this cause.
“However, it is distasteful to note that ever since I made an appearance on television on the 21st of February, 2016, the relevant authorities saddled with the responsibility of saving our economy would rather play politics with the issue – an occurrence that is far too frequent and way too detrimental.”
