A Non-governmental Organization, NGO, Joint Mobile Sanitation Agency of Nigeria, JOMSAN, weekend, called the Federal Government to stop multiple taxation and roadblocks mounted on federal highways in order to enhance smooth food transportation and supply across the country.
This was stated by the President, JOMSAN, Dr Nnamdi Ogbogbo, at a workshop on ‘Building Partnership for Food Security in Nigeria’, held in Abuja.
Ogbogbo explained that the workshop was held in partnership with the Association of Local Governments of Nigeria, ALGON, and National Union of Local Government Employees, NULGE, whose aim is to eradicate multiple taxations and stop all illegal roadblocks by bringing uniformity among all 774 local government revenue contractors in the Mobile Advert Industry.
Ogbogbo also said stopping vehicles on the highways is to check sale of unapproved, fake clearance certificates and the use of unauthorized associations to certify local government permits, and that will henceforth stop and be a thing of the past.
He called for government and the general public’s support and cooperation to ensure that they record a huge success in this pursuit.
