It also showed that 13 states lack the revenue capacity to fund their recurrent their capital expenditure. Mr. Abel Akeni emphasized the need for states to explore the public-private partnership, PPP model to attract private investments into the economy, while stressing the need for the widening of the tax net, blocking of leakages, investment in water rehabilitation, sanitation and should work assiduously to reduce their debt profile.
