BreakingNews 22/6/15 - Abia Special Notice On Multiple Taxation and Illegal Collection of Dues

[ Masterweb Reports: Press Release For Immediate Release ] - It has come to the notice of  the Abia State Government that despite  the ban on multiple taxation and illegal collection of dues, levies and tolls, some miscreants  and their agents  have continued to go contrary to this government directive, both  in Aba and Umuahia metropolis.


For the avoidance of doubt, the government is hereby  re-confirming to the general public that it is only two government agencies  that have  so far been verified, authorized and mandated to collect levies and dues on behalf of government.


These two agencies of government are: Abia State Passengers Integrated Manifest and Safety Scheme (ASPIMSS) and the Physical  Planning  Industrial Development Fund (PPIDF).


The general public are, by this notice,  mandated to continue to pay their normal levies to these two agencies of government.


Any other group, individuals or agentsoutside of these two authorized government agencieswho have continued to defy the  government  order   are again warned to desist from their illegal and unlawful acts. Already, a special security taskforce have started apprehending such culprits and they will face the full  weight of the law. 


The general public are, therefore, reminded that the current  state government is taking the issue of taxation and revenue collection  with serious concern and will  take firm and legitimate measures to bring order and decorum to this important sector of our state economy.
