Anambra State governor Chukwuma Charles Soludo has barred all markets and parks executives from collecting revenue in the state for the government. The governor also disclosed that his administration will commence implementation of a new tax and levy regime in Anambra markets, roads and parks from July 1, 2022, and it is targeted at blocking leakages in revenue collection. Soludo warned those posing as a government revenue collector in any part of the state, to desist forthwith or face the full wrath of the law. He, however, directed that henceforth, all public parks owned by the government will be directly managed by the government, saying that caretaker committee members in Anambra markets are forbidden from collecting revenue on behalf of the government. Soludo noted that the new tax regime has become imperative as the era of revenue generation through the sale of crude oil in Nigeria is gradually phasing out.
