Local Government is established with the aim of performing some local functions within its area. In doing this, the Local Government requires some funds to finance these local functions. These funds are gotten from Federal Government and State Government. However, the Local Government is faced with a lot of difficulties to source adequate revenue from both the Federal Government and the State Government, hence the internally generated revenue within the Local Government is used to finance this local projects without completely depending on the Federal Government and State Government. During the collection of this internally generated revenue within the local government a lot of errors are being made by the officers and also faced with a lot of difficulties to manage the internally generated revenue information. The proposed system aims to eliminate these short comings in the existing method.Â
This project helps to review the various sources of internally generated revenue within Akoko-Edo Local Government Area. A data base management model has been developed for Akoko-Edo Local Government Area Igarra Edo State using C-sharp programming language for the interface coding and SQL for developing the data base. This model will help monitor the whole exercise, if it is truly implemented and adopted by Akoko-Edo Local Government Area Igarra Edo State, it will go a long way helping in the management of revenue information of the Local Government.
