Awka South Council Goes After Illegal Revenue Collectors


In a bid to ensure that taxes and levies abolished by the State Government to cushion the effects of economic recession on Ndi Anambra are no longer collected, Awka south Local government has set up a special Committee called Environmental Watch to arrest culprits who go on to collect those levies from unsuspecting residents.

Inaugurating the committee at the Council Headquarters, Amawbia, the Chairman Awka South Transition Committee, Honorable Leo Nwuba, noted with bitterness how some faceless individuals are bent on sabotaging the good gestures of Governor Willie Obiano to Small and Medium Enterprises in the state.


He assured Ndi Anambra and Awka south in particular that whatever might be their experiences since the abolishment, will no longer repeat it self.

Meanwhile the Bayelsa Board of Internal Revenue, BIR, yesterday sealed off the Bayelsa office of Niger Delta Development Commission,
NDDC, over alleged non-remittance of N336million Pay As You Earn, PAYE tax liability.

The Director of Compliance of the Board Mr. Robert Lokoson, who led the enforcement team, said the state government took the steps following fruitless efforts made to recover the outstanding tax deducted from workers’ salaries since 2014.
