Governor Okorocha demands N3,000 levy from Adults in Imo State


Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha, has instructed traditional rulers in the state to tax at least 2,000 ‘leviable adults’ in their communities the sum of N3,000 as payment of Autonomous Community Adult Development levy.

A social media user, Chidi Odinkalu, took to his Twitter account (@ChidiOdinkalu) on Thursday, April 19, 2018, to share the letter which is believed to have been addressed to all the traditional rulers in the state.

In the letter dated, April 3, 2018, the governor directed all recognised Autonomous Communities in Imo state to pay the Minimum Adult Development Levy of N6 million.

According to the letter, any traditional ruler who fails to achieve such a return into the government’s purse will have their salaries and allowances suspended while their communities will be merged with ‘sister communities’ that meet their targets.
