In a bid to give back to the society, the Directorate of Property and Tenement of Kwara State Internal Revenue Service (KW-IRS) on Saturday 28th January 2017 embarked on the task of clearing the drainage along the most commercialized area in the State, Ibrahim Taiwo Road. This was as part of the Community Impact Programme (CIP) which is capped as the 5 Es; Employment, Environment, Enterprise, Education and Empowerment.
It was a surprise to the Taiwo community seeing KW-IRS staff clear the drainage at Taiwo Road, many of whom were impressed that despite revenue collection having little in common with the clearing of drainage, KW-IRS embarked on such many projects just to make a difference in various communities across the State. The clearing lasted for 3 hours on Saturday, which was equally the Environmental Sanitation day of the State.
The KW-IRS Assistant Director, Property and Tenement, Mrs. Omolara Ojulari noted that the staff of the directorate took it upon themselves to give back to the society in their own little way. She said this is a step that all other directorates in KW-IRS and the State at large should emulate. She stated that while most people were going about their businesses, the KW-IRS staff were committed to selflessly working for the community.
CIP, originally an organization-wide programme only has now been declared by the Executive Chairman, Dr Muritala Awodun to be a Directorate as well as Individual programme. As such, we can expect more projects under this programme and more benefits to the residents of Kwara State.
