This study examine the impact of internally generated revenue IGR) on economic output in Kwara State from 1988 to 2017. The data were however analysed using Autoregressive Distributive Lag model (ARDL) and Vector Autoregressive (VAR). The ARDL test for co-integration at the levels of variables carried out by employing the Bound test within the framework of the estimated ARDL model. The first model is Autoregressive Distributed Lag (ARDL) model developed by Pesaran et al (2001), the second model is the Vector Auto regression (VAR) model which is employed to test for impulse response function and serves as a complement to estimated ARDL model. This was done by specifying and estimating of a regression model. Based on the first model, all the varibales were not statistically significant in determining the output level in the state which is contrary to previous studies such as Ogundayo, Onakoya and Afintini(2017);Augus and David(2011) amongst others established a conflicting results. similarly, results of the second model indicates that inflation rate, interest rate as well as gap(deficit) have negative impact on output which conform with the studies of Hakan, Ali and Hassan (2008; Faraji and Kenani(2013) Jelilov (2016) interest rate on output was contrary amongst others.Given the above findings, the study therefore recommended the followings amongst other:The state government should imbibe the culture of fiscal discipline as well as huge capital expenditure so as to ensure growth in output level in the state. Also, the government should ensure that more funds are being expended on developmental project rather than stomach infrastructure couple with adequate and properly monitoring in order to achieve inclusive growth of output similarly, The rate of interest should be market determined in order to encourage investment inflow into the state. Finally, Price control mechanism should be put in place with the aim of checkmating the undesirable effect of inflation rate on the economic output of the Kwara State, Nigeria.
1.1 Background to the Study
In recent decades, internally generated revenue has remained the main focus of all States and
Local Government Areas in Nigeria. Indeed, this is informed by the important role it played in
the development of the society. No system or rule can be effectively functional whether foreign
or domestic unless it enjoys an appreciable level of financial buoyancy on a sustainable basis.
Due to the issue ofinadequate of finance that has been the major problem which both State and
Local Governments in Nigeria have been grappling with in recent times, it is a matter of
necessity that other means of generating income is exploited. However, many of them have made
attempts to exploit economic potentials of their areas which are in abundance, to finance their
activities and enhance their development through other means to generate more revenue. It is
curious to note that such efforts are yet to yield desired results as the efforts are offset by
problems that impede effective and efficient revenue generation.
Every government needs funds to finance its activities. But the sources of such revenues can
hardly be exhaustive. This is so because an efficient Internal Revenue Generation plays a crucial
role in the developmental drive of governments at any level. It is more pronounced in developing
or transitional economies. Over dependent on the crude oil as a sole means of generating funds
has subjected all tiers of governments in Nigeria to serious financial stress as statutory
allocations have been fluctuating at abysmal levels. (Adenuga&Ogechi 2013).
The need for state governments to revisit the optimality and adequacy of their revenue generation
drive from internal sources within the state has therefore become a matter of extreme urgency
and importance. For example, Taxation which is a necessary ingredient for civilization, in any
given society it helps in redistribution of wealth. ―The history of man has shown that man has to
pay tax in one form or the other, that is, either in cash or in kind, initially to his chieftain and
later to organized governments‖. (Ojo, 2003).
For any State to achieve meaningful economic development, it requires effective and efficient
revenue management, budgetary control and other components of public sector. Revenue
generation and management in most emerging economies are for social, economic development
and provision of infrastructure. These are made possible through implementation of all possible
means of revenue generation within the State, since revenue is considered as the oil in the wheel
of progress of any economic setting such as States and LGA in Nigeria.
However, state governments generate their revenues from numbers of sources which include
statutory allocations, corporate donations, foreign aids, and of course internally generated
revenue (IGR). IGR is one of the sources that have not being fully explored let alone exploited in
This study focuses on the extent to which IGR contributes to the total income of States and LGA
using annual time series for the period 1988 to 2017, using Kwara State as a case study.
According to the Kwara State‘s annual financial report (2016), the sources of revenue available
to Kwara State include local licenses, fees, fines, earnings from commercial undertakings,
market rates, investment income, aid and grants, rent on government property, retained earnings
of parastatals, interest payment and dividend, loans, taxes. Other sources include statutory
allocations from federation account, value added tax (VAT), drawings from excess crude
