Hand­ing over the ma­chine to the lo­cal govern­ment, the First City Mon­u­ment Bank, (FCMB) Zonal Head, North West, Ab­dul­lahi Mainasara, said the bank has de­vel­oped the tax collection plat­form as part of its con­tri­bu­tion to the suc­cess of cash­less econ­omy and fi­nan­cial in­clu­sion poli­cies of the Cen­tral Bank.

He said the de­ploy­ment of the PoS to mar­kets and other collection points would help in re­duc­ing leak­ages, “The de­ploy­ment of the PoS to mo­tor parks, mar­kets and other collection points will help re­duce leak­ages in tax collection, en­hance au­to­ma­tion, track­ing and real time reporting of rev­enue collection.”

Mainasara added that the ini­tia­tive which is pi­loted in Fagge Lo­cal Govern­ment Area of Kano State would spread to all the 44 lo­cal govern­ment ar­eas of the state with a view to boost­ing the in­ter­nally gen­er­ated rev­enue of the state.

Ac­cord­ing to him, the bank would con­duct re­fresher train­ing for rev­enue col­lec­tors and other staff in­volved in the project on the use and op­er­a­tions of the PoS.
