The Osun State Government has given the marching orders to relevant agencies to "use all necessary means". including total shutdown, to collect the backlog of taxes of more than N4.7 billion owed the state by Federal Government’s Ministries, Departments and  Agencies (MDAs), especially education institutions, operating in the state.

This was contained in a statement issued by Mr Sola Fasure, Media Adviser to Governor Rauf Aregbesola, on Wednesday after the State Executive Council meeting held at the Executive Council Chamber, Office of the Governor, State Secretariat, Osogbo.‎

The directive was given to the state Inland Revenue Service (OIRS) to bring the full weight of the law to bear on culpable federal agencies operating in the state which are owing the government taxes.‎ The Council expressed dismay at the agencies’ intransigence at paying tax as and when due, saying no effort would henceforth be spared in collecting every kobo of government from those owing past and current taxes.

The decision of the Council came after deliberating on the report that federal agencies in the state held back more than N4.7 billion taxes due to the state for several years.

The statement reads in part: “The established tax liability alone is N4.2 billion, while current liability is N524 million, totalling N4.7 billion. This huge sum is needed by the government to meet critical obligations.

“Council asked these institutions to pay what they are owing immediately and directed all the relevant government agencies to use all necessary means, including shutting them down, to collect what is being owed the government from them.”‎

‎The state government also condemned in its totality the heinous activities of game hunters who set bush on fire in order to trap animal. This often leads to burning of crops and economic trees. The council warned those who engage in this acts to desist and directed law enforcement agencies to put an end to this by enforcing relevant laws.

‎According to the Council, ‎“those engaged in this economic sabotage acts are urged to desist forthwith as law enforcement agencies have been  directed to bring culprits to book.”

‎The Council also congratulated Aregbesola on the seventh anniversary of his administration, which will come up on November 27. ‎

‎The Council expressed satisfaction at the giant strides the administration had made since inception and forthwith approved the programmes lined up for celebrating the event.
