Benue State Assembly probes multiple taxation in the state

The Benue State House of Assembly has condemned alleged multiple and high taxes in the state.
This followed last week’s protest by farmers and traders in the state over increasing taxation.
Speaker of the Assembly, Mr Terkimbi Ikyange, said the house has constituted a three-man ad-hoc committee to investigate the allegation and report back in three weeks.
The committee has Mr. Richard Ujege as Chairman, while Mrs. Mercy Anyanhur is to serve as Secretary. Other members are, Bem Mngutyo and Mathew Ire.
The motion was raised by the member representing Tarka State Constituency, Mr. Bem Mngutyo, under matters of public importance.
The lawmaker expressed dissatisfaction at the arbitrary taxes being foisted on market products, most of which are perishable goods.
He lamented that the situation has become unbearable, resulting in the widespread protest in his constituency, which claimed the life of a baby who slipped off her mother’s back.
The motion was seconded by Mr. Benjamin Nungwa, representing Kwande West constituency, who acknowledged the existence of diverse tax tickets in the state.
