The Minister of Budget and National Planning, Senator Udo Udoma, has emphasised the need for the country to increase its revenue generation.
Udoma made the call during the Public Consultation on the 2019-2021 Medium Term Fiscal Framework and Strategy Forum on Thursday in Abuja.
He said it is important for the country to substantially concentrate at increasing its oil and non-oil revenues as well as reduce borrowing.
The minister also harped on the need for the country to ensure it increased its revenue through tax collection.
According to Udoma, the medium term framework outlined the Federal Government’s strategies and macro-economic projections for 2019-2021, which is built on the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan (ERGP).
