Monarchs in Osun State are now expected to play an active role in ensuring that the state generates adequate revenue from tax collection.

This came as the state governor, Adegboyega Oyetola on Thursday implored the monarchs in the state, including Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, to mobilise their subjects to pay their taxes regularly.

He said the call was necessary to help the administration actualise its dreams of boosting the revenue profile of the state.

Governor Oyetola spoke on Thursday during the presentation of Staff of Office and Instrument of Appointment to the newly appointed Olulamokun of Yakooyo, Oba Meschack Oyewole Oyediran, at Yakooyo in Ife-North Local Government.

He urged the government not to relent in its efforts to take the state to next level of development.
