People who consume alcohol in Akwa Ibom will now be made to pay tax. The State’s Commissioner for Finance, Akan Okon, made the announcement yesterday while speaking with Journalists in Uyo.

“Some people who lodge in hotels and consume alcohol will henceforth pay taxes to the state government. The focus is to look inward to see how the various opportunities that are available in the state can be harnessed to raise the Internally Generated Revenue(IGR),’’ the commissioner said.

The commissioner also decried the attitude of some businessmen in the informal sector of the economy who fail to pay their taxes to government. He noted that if they paid their taxes, it would help the state pull resources together and that would help in providing social amenities for citizens.
