Lawmaker representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District, Senator Shehu Sani, has opined that agitations across the country would go into extinction when states improve on their Internally Generated Revenues, IGR, and depend less on the monthly Federal allocations.

Sani, who is the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Local and Foreign debts, said this on Tuesday when some State Commissioners of Finance came before his committee.
The Commissioner for Finance appeared before Sani-led committee to defend their various loan facilities which they seek to obtain from some international finance agencies like the World Bank and the Islamic Bank.
According to Sani, “We need to sit up in terms of knowing fully that there is a cloud gathering in the sky, the agitations going in some states should tell us that we need to brace ourselves to what is ahead”
“If we reach the point Where IGR in some state gets to One billion most of these issues will disappear”
Sani also frowned at a situation where the, “healthiness in some States is attached to what comes from Abuja.”

The Kaduna-born lawmaker also lamented the failure of some states to repay foreign loans they obtained.
