Ogun Justice ministry praised for surpassing IGR

By Adebisi Onanuga

Chairman, the Committee on Monitoring and Performance for the 2019 budget, Ogun State House of Assembly, Mr. Solomon Osho, has commended Ogun State Ministry of Justice for achieving 50 percent increase in its Internally Generated Revenue (IGR), compared to what was projected in the budget for the year.

Osho, alongside other members of the committee, spoke at an oversight function held at the Ministry in Abeokuta.

He lauded the level of achievement within six months, noting that the ministry had been able to acquire 63.5 percent of its earnings, within a short period of time.

Earlier, Solicitor-General and Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Mrs. Yetunde Oresanya, said the administration had been supportive since its inception, which aided the ministry’s feat.

She observed, however,  that the Ministry needs more office space, furniture, internet facilities, library equipment and vehicles.

“Although the state government had made some arrangement in terms of mobility, there would be need for provision of more vehicles based on the consideration that the officials of the ministry travel to all judicial districts across the state on regular basis”, she said.

Also, the state’s Director, Public Prosecution Department (PPD), Mr. Yemi Adewole, pointed out that, aside material resources, there was also the need for more lawyers and secretariat  staff members, noting that the volume of criminal matters grow as the population increases.
