Wheel Barrow Pushers, Vulcanisers, Hawkers To Stop Paying Levy In Anambra
In order to minimise tax incidence for which Governor Chukwuma Soludo’s administration has been heavily criticised, the Governor on Wednesday abolished the collection of taxes from income business owners, among them: Keke drivers, wheelbarrow pushers, hawkers and vulcanizers.
Governor Soludo said the government is trying to minimise tax incidence on the people.
He said: “We are also trying to minimize tax incidence on our people. Keke Drivers who pay their taxes will be given free health insurance. People have forgotten that the government make use of taxes to work.
“This message must go to all markets in Anambra. Wheelbarrow pushers must not pay any fee in the state.
“Vulcanizers operating along the road should also cease from paying any fee to anyone.
“Hawkers shouldn’t pay any fees. These poor people should stop being harassed.
“This message is for the Market unions. If they are found with any evidence, that union will be dissolved with immediate effect.
“We want to build a society where the poor feel empowered and where the rich can get more resources to create wealth and employment, Soludo said.
