Building Approval: ECTDA Bars LGs From Collecting Development, Empowerment Levies

The Enugu Capital Territory Development Authority, ECTDA, has barred the three municipal councils in Enugu capital city from the collection of assorted building levies.

This was contained in a notice issued to the affected councils by the ECTDA, where it declared that it had sole responsibility to collect such levy and that it was illegal for the councils to delve into it.

The levies include: Building approval and Due Process Compliance levy; Development levy, Site Maintenance levy; Youth Empowerment levy and Container permit.

The affected local government councils are Enugu North, Enugu South and Enugu East local government councils, all within the jurisdiction of Enugu Capital Territory Development Authority, ECTDA.

Subsequently, the Authority has directed security agencies to arrest and prosecute defaulters and agents of the councils whom it accused of promoting double taxation and making lives miserable for developers and residents in the state capital.

In the Compliance Notice issued to the affected three local government councils, Chairman of ECTDA, Dr. Josef Onoh described Demand Notices of Building Approval served by the councils as illegal since the victims eventually come to ECTDA to make another payment.

“In line with the above listed illegal acts, we are compelled to put you in the know of the provisions of the law giving powers to the Authority to function within the capital territory.

“ECTDA laws of 2009 No.5 and Revised of 2014 gives the agency the sole responsibility to enforce compliance with appropriate standards in the Development of Enugu Capital City.

“These excessive and illegal actions by your staff contravenes and usurps the powers and functions of the Authority as provided in sections 16 (2) and (4) of ECTDA law. In view of the foregoing, all activities being carried out within the capital territory by agents parading in the form and style of (Youth Empowerment) in relation to infrastructural development and municipal services (which in itself tantamount to double taxation) is hereby banned with immediate effect,” Onoh directed the councils.

He stated that his agency would not allow anybody to undermine the efforts Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi had put in place for the development and attraction of investments to the state and warned law breakers to beware.

He further charged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, and the Independent Corrupt Practice and other Related Offences Commission, ICPC, to prosecute any defaulting council chairman.

"Enugu state is in the hands of God" very funny slogan. I'm sure they were already blaming Buhari for their woes never knowing their own brothers were responsible for their misfortunes.

Honestly, this is a good development. Enugu East is the worst of them all. I saw 'shege' the last time I went there to just build ordinary duplex.

All of them are thieves.

I know that these development levies are now the major sources of income to this government, I hope it is not ploy to eat alone while the LGAs starve. Come to think of it, why am I paying the levies when I will be the one to construct road to my house, renovate the road when it is bad while I have the ECTDA. I will be the one to buy and install Electric poles, buy conductors and service my house. I will pay for Electric power consumed through prepaid meter, but when the Transformer is overloaded, I will be asked to contribute money to fix the problem.
So what is ECTDA doing with the levies/ money collected?

We don't talk about provision of Water again, God has settled that using Rev Fr. Ejike Mbaka as he helps to ensure the poor are able to afford drinking water.
