The Anambra State Internal Revenue Services ( AIRS) has began Sensitization of government Revenue  payment across Markets in  the state.

Addressing journalists in Onitsha, the Executive Director of Internal Revenue Services (AIRS) for Anambra North zone,  Dr. Christian Madubuko said that the Sensitization would ginger traders who have not paid their government development levy to comply immediately.

" Our mission here today is to sensitize the people about payment of government development levy in the Market. Some have paid while some have not complied. We are giving those who have not paid up till tomorrow to comply, otherwise by Saturday morning, it will going to be hot" Madubuko declared.

Dr. Madubuko however disclosed that the amount payable for the levy is ₦12,200 annually but under review, pointing out that government targets not less than ₦4billion monthly from trader's development levy.

" So far, people are complying but they need to do more and that is why we are going round the Markets to inform them" 

Meanwhile, the Internal Revenue boss has visited some Markets in Onitsha which included; International textile Market Onitsha popularly known as Ogbo-abada, Bridge-Head Market Onitsha and Ogbaru Main Market. He noted that the exercise is a continuous process.

Commenting, the President general of Ogbaru Main Market, Mr. Ndubisi Ochiogu stated that he was impressed for the presence of the Revenue director in the Market, stating that his presence has vindicated what he  had been telling traders to pay their government revenue on time.

" Traders have now believed what I have been telling them. Although, those who have paid their own revenue in my Market is greater than those who have not complied. So, I am still urging the remaining traders who have not paid to do that immediately.
