Chairman of Anambra State Internal Revenue Service (AIRS) Mr Richard Madiebo has disclosed that the state government generate monthly revenue of N100 millions from tricycle operators alone .
Madiebo made the disclosure while briefing journalists on the success they have made through the digitalisation of revenue collections in the state .
He said that before the introduction of digital revenue collections in the state ,the government was generating N7 millions monthly from the tricycle operators,but today it has risen up to N100 millions.
According to him,the government started the digital revenue collections from the Keke riders and it has been successful .
He also stated that the government will replicate the model to all the revenue collections in the state.
Madiebo also stated that the government was still having challenges making people in the markets complying with the digital payments .
“The Keke model will be replicated in all the markets in Anambra state. Though,we are having challenges for those in the markets paying in through digital means. Surely,we will keep to the Keke model. Before now people are doing all things they want in the name revenue collections,but now it can no longer work for them” he said
BVI Channel 1 online is of the opinion that AIRS Chairman should find a revenue model on how to collect revenue from landlords who have more than two houses and above ,and private car owners whose car is above N5 million among others
