We’ll treat operators of illegal revenue checkpoints as armed robbers – Gov Ortom

Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has declared that henceforth, all operators of illegal revenue collection checkpoints in Benue State would be treated as armed robbers when apprehended.

The Governor gave the warning Monday, February 21, 2022, at the Benue Peoples House Makurdi while signing into law the amended Benue Internal Revenue Administration Law of the state.

He explained that revenue collection in the state had been contracted to consultants and urged interested persons to work with them, stressing that anyone caught operating illegally will be treated like a criminal.

The Governor acknowledged the decline in revenue generation and the need to improve on all areas to be able to cater for the needs of the state.

Governor Ortom thanked members of the Benue State House of Assembly for the speedy passage of the amendment and pledged a sustained cordial working relationship between the executive and the legislature.

Deputy Speaker of the Benue State House of Assembly, Hon Christopher Adaji, who represented the Speaker of the House of Assembly, said the amendments were done after due consultations with critical stakeholders and relevant provisions of the law.
