The dictionary defines it as the ‘government by the people in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised directly by…
According to the IOSR Journal of Economics and Finance, internally generated revenue (IGR) is revenue generated by local governments within their jurisdiction. The ability of local governments to make money internally is one of the most important considerations in forming a local council.

Internally generated imports (IGRs) are primarily generated income within the Federation of Nigeria, regardless of the share of income earned in the federation’s account.

Within the microcosm of their historical epoch, these selfless leaders saw the alleviation of their people’s plights as the ultimate sacrifice and price to be borne by them by all means.
This set of pathfinders are, however, rare…

Predicting the top Nigerian cities when the startup blink website releases its annual list ranking the top startup cities in the world is one of my favorite pastimes and this year, I was pleasantly surprised when I noticed that Enugu state had climbed into the top five ranked ecosystems in the country.
With this news that Enugu state is now Nigeria’s fifth-ranked startup ecosystem, things are looking up for startups and investors in the Coal city who would rather not have to go all the way to Lagos to find viable investment opportunities.
It is a…

“Lining the edges of the ESBS bus stop are sounds normal to everyone watching- school children rushing to go to class, bus drivers and their conductors speeding on the nary road as if they built the tarmac, petite hawkers selling edibles of colorful wraps, Gala and assortment of soft drinks to nosh on the way to the other side of town.

Nigeria’s political atmosphere is already heating up. Camps are pitching tents. Consultations from the North to the South, and from the East to the West are already gaining momentum across the Niger.
