He stated that it is an offence punishable under law for any citizen who does not pay tax adding that any person found collecting illegal tax from any citizen will be punished.

Meanwhile, the Chairman of the Tax Revenue Committee, Mr. Choke Okafor added that the state government has put all necessary measures in place to ensure that the internal generated revenue of the state is increased to N2 billion monthly compared to below N500 million which was generated before now.
