Kwara State Commissioner for Communications Seeks Collaborative Support from KWIRS


In a bid to perform the statutory functions required, the Kwara State Commissioner for Communications, Hon. Bolanle Olukoju, has sought for the collaborative support and a cordial working relationship with the Kwara State Internal Revenue Service (KWIRS) to enable the Ministry and its agencies realise their full potentials in generating substantial revenue for the state with the provision of necessary tools and resources.

During a courtesy visit to the Revenue House, Hon. Olukoju emphasised the revenue-generating capabilities within the Ministry of Communications. Notably, the Kwara State Signage and Advertisement Agency (KWASAA), operating under the Ministry, has the potential to generate millions of naira for the state. Additionally, she highlighted the untapped opportunities within the state that the Ministry of Communications could harness with the right tools to operate.

Hon. Olukoju specifically requested support in the form of utility vehicles to enhance the Ministry and its agencies’ efficiency and facilitate the delivery of their respective mandates.


In her response, Mrs Shade Omoniyi, the Chairman of KWIRS, expressed delight for the visit and pledged her readiness to support the Ministry’s goals and objectives. She agreed that prioritising the allocation of utility vehicles to the Ministry would contribute to the state’s revenue mobilisation efforts.

Mrs Omoniyi also recognised the tourism potential of Sobi Hills in Ilorin and urged for the  proper utilisation of this natural asset. She described the panoramic view of Ilorin from the hill as a potential tourist attraction.

The visit concluded with the exchange of gifts between the Ministry and KWIRS. Alhaji Abdulganiyu Atere, the State Director of Information Services, extended his gratitude to the Chairman of KWIRS and her team for their warm reception and camaraderie.
