States across the country have been urged to look inwards through internally generated revenue and harness the potentials that are abundant in the states rather than waiting for the monthly allocation from the federation account.
Former Speaker of Benue State House of Assembly, Terhemen Tarzoor, in an interactive session with the Benue community in Jos, believes that Benue State stands out to tap into available resources without depending solely on oil revenue.
Professionals from different fields, academia, traders, artisans as well as politicians of Benue State origin gathered at the Hill Station Hotel, Jos, north central region of Nigeria for the interactive session with the former Speaker.
The former Speaker urged them to remain steadfast in the Nigerian project and remain good ambassadors of Benue State wherever they might reside within the country.
Sharing of revenue which attracted attention, passion and emotion during the National Conference debate also received his attention as he stressed the importance of states looking inwards in generating funds rather than waiting for allocation from the federal purse.
He highlighted the agricultural sector which has not been fully exploited as one area to generate funds for the running of the states.
