Adults In Imo State To Pay N3,000 As Community Development Levy

There is palpable tension in the 27 Local Councils of Imo State over the state governor , Rochas Okorocha ’ s directive that every adult must pay a N 3, 000 Autonomous Community Development levy.

According to a letter to monarchs of 644 autonomous communities, signed by the commissioner for Government Council , Louis O . Duru , the monarchs were directed to raise about N 6 million from estimated 2, 000 adults from each community for development purposes in the communities .

The letter reminded the monarchs that the governor had severally in the past, dating from 2016, directed them to compel their subjects to pay the said levy, compulsorily writing the details of the payment in the Adult Register in each community, to develop their communities. “ Any recognized autonomous community that fails to pay the development levy will be merged with a sister autonomous community that has paid and the salaries/allowances of the traditional ruler of the erring community will be suspended , ” it said .

The directive stressed that sensitization meeting and monitoring would be embarked upon , to ensure compliance .
But in anger , respondents and callers on the various phone -in programmes on the radio yesterday objected to it, saying the directive dissatisfied them . They also opined that they couldn’ t afford what they called “ double taxation at the moment , ” stressing that the hardship was much in the state to warrant such .

After spending the state fund in mooding human status...honestly our politicians are all devil agents. how can a good leader that has the interest of his people in mind waste money on unnecessary things then start multi taxing his people?

I had heated argument in an online group that had virtually top notchers in the state, and I was like what has rochas done so far to win the people of my state to gladly pay the 3k. I said apparently nothing. so why the imposition? Well, his days are numbered cos his power elongation and retainership ends soon.
