- Advertisment -
The government of the state of Osun in a bold move to increase its internally generated revenue and recoup over N30bn tax owed by several organisation, has streamlined the Osun Internal Revenue Service, OIRS, with the reformation of the organizational structure for optimum performance.
OIRS had in the past few months deployed innovative solutions in its tax collection process through the leadership of seasoned tax administrator, Mr. Oludayo Oyebamiji.
However, following the recent resignation of Mr. Oyebamiji from the service, the state government has appointed a tax consultant, Mr. Bicci Alli, as acting head of OIRS.
Alli, who holds qualifications in Business Administration, Accounting and Taxation is a fellow of both the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria. ICAN and Chartered institute of Taxation of Nigeria, CITN.

Mr. Alli formerly of the Lagos State Internal Revenue Service, LIRS; successfully managed assigned revenue generating units and directorates within the service, contributing enormously to the monumental growth in Lagos State tax payers’ base, with the service netting an average of N20bn monthly IGR for the state.
In October 2015, Mr. Bicci Alli was invited by the Governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi to head a management team with the mandate to run OYBIR on day to day basis, and at the same time draw up and implement reform programmes for OYBIR aimed at making the Board fully autonomous.
Within a short period of 14months, Bicci Alli led management team, block revenue leakages, brought thousands in the informal sector to the tax net, stopped reversal window in revenue collecting banks and increased Oyo’s IGR by over 1000%.
Bicci Alli has presented over 50 papers on various aspects of Tax Policies, Laws and Administration at different fora, locally and internationally. He’s tasked with the assignment of  radically increasing the state IGR.
