Chairperson of the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN) in
Anambra, Enugu, and Ebonyi states, Lady Ada Chukwudozie, has commended
Governor Charles Soludo of Anambra State over the decision to abolish flying revenues in the state.
In a statement yesterday, Lady Chukwudozie described Soludo’s action as appropriate and consoling, due to the level of hardship manufacturers, transporters and people of the state were subjected to, following gross abuse of the process by the revenue collectors and the exorbitant amount demanded.
On Tuesday during a meeting with transport owners and operators at the Governor’s Lodge, Awka, Soludo announced the immediate termination of the contract with the consultant handling Flying Revenues in the state, which includes, haulage, loading and offloading.
Lady Chukwudozie commended the governor for feeling the pulse of the masses and proving once again that he is a listening and caring governor.
“I am personally elated by the governor’s decision. This is clear evidence and manifestation of the fact that the people of Anambra indeed have a listening governor.
“One of the greatest attributes of a good leader is the ability to objectively process feedback and take informed and balanced decisions in the overall interest of the people, not minding whose ox is gored.
“This is exactly what Soludo did. It is a big relief to us. I am sure a lot of people are happy with this decision too,” Chukwudozie said.
