Aba marketplace ladies reject more than one taxes by way of government

EZIUKWU market girls in Aba have rejected more than one taxation imposed on them with the aid of Abia State government which they said they can't pay and still be able to cater for his or her households. The investors had ultimate week protested at the secretariat of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ, in Aba, accusing the country Commissioner for Trade and Investment, Mr Cosmos Ndukwe of allegedly masterminding the imposition of more than one taxation against the buyers in the marketplace. 
Speaking to reporters, the investors appealed to Governor Okezie lkpeazu to apply his humanitarian disposition to shop the investors from the financial burden allegedly imposed on them by the commissioner. One of the ladies, Mrs Beatrice James, a dealer in Zone 26 of the marketplace, stated the market’s stewards have been making lifestyles hard for them by means of enforcing heavy payments on them  thru the yr.

She said: “We pay for environmental sanitation (N2,500 , twice  a 12 months); gutter fee (N2000); critical security (N2,500); Bakassi safety outfit (N2000); fire extinguisher (N2,500); proposed corridor production(N2000);  and tax (N3,six hundred). “They  collect a couple of taxes from us. We pay for fireplace extinguisher without  getting the extinguishers. We pay a total of N5,500, but our stores are damaged into and our goods stolen after market hours. “But this year, they stated that we need to be paying N18, 000 however we stated it's miles too much and requested for a reduction to allow us pay but they  refused. So, we told them that we can not pay such quantity and we went to court.” She noted that last week , they went to the market most effective to find that government marketers have locked their shops because of the N18,000 which induced them to talk. Another dealer, Mrs Chinenye Uchenna, said: 

“We pay for safety in four locations: vital protection (N2,500), zonal safety (N2000), Bakassi (N1000), and Supporting Security (N500). “For sanitation, they divided it into three: environmental price (N1000), sanitation fee (N2000) and gutter rate (N500) and infrastructure levy (N2000). “They came this year to call for that we pay N18,000 consolidated sales, which we're  protesting.” Efforts to reach the state’s Trade and Investment Commissioner, Mr Cosmos Ndukwe and the Board of Internal Revenue Chairman, Mr Celestine Agbara, failed as they did now not pick their calls or answered to textual content messages sent them.
