Vice President, Kashim Shettima, met with a delegation of the Revenue Mobilization Allocation and Fiscal Commission (RMAFC) in his office in Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Tuesday, September 5.
Addressing the delegation of the Commission led by the Chairman, Mohammed Shehu, the vice president, assured the officials of the Bola Tinubu government’s support and cooperation in order to make it more proactive and responsive to its mandate.
While underscoring the importance of the Commission to the polity, Shettima said the work of the Commission transcends all tiers of government, especially as it relates to its crucial task of assisting the government to generate adequate revenue to deliver democratic dividends across the federation.
He noted that the Federal Government under President Tinubu would address some of the challenges facing the Commission, noting that some of the solutions might require input from the subnational to the federal and the legislative to the judiciary.
The Vice President stated further that since the Commission is a constitutional body, any amendment to its mandate must pass through the National Assembly so that it can perform its constitutional functions without difficulties.
