Ogun loses N5bn monthly to illegal revenue collectors – Amosun

The Ogun State governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, says the state government has been losing between N3bn and N5bn to illegal revenue collectors.

He said this on Monday while flagging off a policy to eradicate multiplicity in haulage revenue collection at the June 12 Cultural Centre, Kuto, Abeokuta.

The governor said it was worrisome that the state had lost a lot of revenue because some unscrupulous elements had printed their own tickets, stickers and issuing them to unsuspecting haulage operators and traders on the roads.

Amosun said with the commencement of the harmonisation of the haulage revenue collection,  a task force had been established to arrest any illegal toll collectors and that such suspects would be prosecuted.
