The Anambra State governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo has banned taxes for certain categories of lower level people.

This is coming after the outcry by members of the public over his tav policies in the state.

The category of people excluded from tax payment include : vulcanizers, wheelbarrow pushers and other petty hawkers.

The governor stated this when he hosted a public bid auction for revenue agents at the State government house, Awka.

He stressed that the bid is part of the revolution to give value for money stated that his administration is working to build back the connection between the citizens and the government because the people employed them to work for them.

He warned that these categories of people excluded from tax payment should stop being harassed and that government was about the people rather than himself and other government officials.

The governor threatened to dissolve with immediate effect any market union that collects any form levies from these categories of people and asked them to report anyone that collects money from them in the name of government.

Soludo ensured that every incoming revenue would be put to judicious use as contracts would be awarded for more road construction so as to solve the problem of road crisis.

He also emphasized that " we want to build a society where the poor feel empowered and where the rich can get more resources to create wealth and employment"

He reiterated that for every society to function, everyone must pay their fair share,noting that his government is working to reduce the tax incidents on the people ,even though people have forgotten that government work for the people with tax money.

Wow, who ever thought an Igbo man will come up with this kind of idea. Most Igbo men are known for their undying love for money and business. So this statement changes things(:
Sometimes, when I go to the market and see hustlers such as petty hawkers been extorted of their hard end money, it is quite painful to see. I think to this should go viral. All the states should adopt this measure and see how the people will love them for this.

Sounds nice. Some certain people should be exempted from stringet laws and policies

I just hope that they will go ahead and actually enforce this.... because the policy makers wont be there when the touts begin to harrase the market people.
