“leviable adults” in the state to pay N3,000 each as “development levy.”

 
Duru, in the statement claims that the money is to be used for “autonomous community adult development”, adding that the state had registered at least 2,000 leviable adults in each of the 637 autonomous communities.
 
The statement revealed further that recognised communities will serve as the collectors and they are to pay not less than N6 million each. Okorocha warned that the traditional rulers of defaulting communities will have their allowances or salaries suspended.
Quote
“To facilitate the payment, the state government through the ministry of CGC, since September 2016, has provided community adult registers for all autonomous communities in the state where the communities will enlist the names of at least 2000 leviable adults.”

“Consequently, Owelle Okorocha has directed that all recognised autonomous communities in Imo State should pay the minimum adult development levy of without further delay.

“Any recognised autonomous community that fails to pay the development levy will be merged with sister autonomous community that had paid and the salaries/allowances of the traditional ruler ill be suspended.

“Government has concluded arrangements to embark on sensitisation meetings with traditional rulers at the local government areas to further emphasize His Excellency’s directives and monitor compliance.”

he must account for those stupid statues he made, the public know it is a wasteful expenditure, which would not serve any positive interest of the people.

Can he clearly explain why he made statues, while the state does not have 24 hours of electricity, what are the priorities of the government, is it to extort and  oppress its people or is it to empower the people, the people are hardworking all they need is infrastructure, the people don't need free money, they don't need 100  or 1000 naire notes. The people know what is important, they don't want to remain under the manipulations of greedy politicians.
