Anambra Arrests 250 ‘Illegal Revenue Collectors’ by Peacemaker5128: 8:24am On Oct 22, 2022
The Anambra Commissioner for Economic Planning, Mark Okoye, has said 250 illegal revenue collectors have been arrested and charged to court.

Mr Okoye, who said this while briefing journalists in Awka on Friday, said the government would ensure that justice was done to serve as a deterrent to erring citizens.

“We implore the public to shun any act that goes against the developmental vision of the state as the government would not hesitate to lawfully deal with any defaulter,” Mr Okoye said.

The commissioner said the government under the watch of Willie Obiano was committed to delivering democratic dividends to the people.

Mr Okoye said the state government had presented a realistic budget to the state lawmakers for the year 2020 and assured the residents of better days ahead.

He urged all citizens to ensure they played their roles by paying their taxes, dues and levies to enable the government provide basic human amenities for their enjoyment.

Mr Okoye said the state government had implemented the 2019 budget up to 85 per cent and assured that by end of the year, the budget would be reasonably implemented.

“We scaled down on the size of 2020 budget because we are a realistic government and we intend to have a people-oriented budget,” he said.

Meanwhile, Sylvia Nwachukwu-Ngige, Head, Tax Payer Education, Publicity and Enlightenment Team in Anambra state Revenue office, corroborated the claims of the commissioner.

How you take know?

If you're not a recruited agbero from Pa Tinubu, to be able to come to this conclusion, I believe you have a branch of your agberos from Lagos to Upper iweka....

Way to go, I wish something like this will be replicated in Lagos, will save lots of lives.. most people think the issue at alaba market is Igbo versus Yoruba thing, well, it's not. It's actually traders (Igbo, Hausa, Yoruba and other tribes) against extortionists driving away customers

The Interim National Coordinator of Bola Ahmed Tinubu, BAT Ambassadors, Chief Jamiu Afolabi Ekungba has said that Nigeria at this point needs a man who can consistently follow ideas agreed upon, especially in the execution of his released manifesto and not a fair-weather personality who consistently jump from boat to boat to suit his personal desire or those of his cohorts....
