Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello has suspended the management of the State Internal Revenue Service with immediate effect.

Chief Press Secretary to the Governor Onogwu Muhammed said in a statement on Tuesday in Lokoja.

Muhammed said that the suspension was due to the alleged violation of corporate governance in the service as revealed by its 2019 Audited Financial Report.

“The governor decided to ensure that the service carried out its activities with excellent corporate governance, utmost transparency and accountability.”

Muhammed added that the governor also approved the constitution of an interim management committee to oversee the daily affairs of the service.
