Abia to commence digital tax system for transporters, traders



By Foster Obi

Abia State Governor, Dr Alex Chioma Otti has launched a new organised digital tax system for transporters and traders in the state.

Speaking about the launch, the governor who has been on the go since he was sworn in said, “I’m proud to introduce a revolutionary digital tax system that is designed to curb fraud and augment revenue.

“This system incorporates a free medical insurance scheme for all commercial vehicle operators, enabling us to fuel entrepreneurial growth and progress within the state.

“We envisage this digital platform to not only simplify tax compliance, but also unlock substantial revenue for development projects, thereby strengthening our state’s economy.

“It offers easy payment options for both transporters and traders, and promotes transparency, reflecting our steadfast commitment to facilitating business operations in Abia state.

Stakeholders believe proper implementation will make it the first of its kind in the country.

Since he assumed office, the governor has hit the ground running to follow up on his campaign promises.

Addressing the people after taking his oath of office, Otti reassured that his administration would immediately put his campaign promises into action to salvage the state from its sorry state.

According to him, he is challenged by the deficit of the state, as well as over N50 billion required to settle workers salary and pension arrears.

He noted he would abolish the dichotomy between core civil and public servants in the state with respect to paying salaries.

The governor is already getting accolades for standing up to his mandate barely a month after.
