A levy of N20,000 has been slammed on persons or groups planning to host any event in Ikeja Local Government Area of Lagos state.

The decision was contained in a memo signed by the chairman of Ikeja local government, Mojeed Balogun, which was sent to event organisers and event centres within the local government, Peoples Gazette reports.

 

According to the memo,

The council chairman authorizes that N20,000 levy should be paid into four different bank accounts listed in the memo before hosting any event within the local government.

 

The council chairman advised event planners and party hosts to make payment into the account before hosting parties in order to avoid embarrassment from local governments officials.

 

“This is to inform all Customers/Event Planners that you are liable to pay the sum of Twenty Thousand Naira Only (N20,000.00) being merriment/entertainment fee per event which is in line with the Lagos State Government harmonized approved rates/levies payable to the Local Government Authority (Lagos State Notice No. 22 Vol. 23 July 2010 Law on levies) TO AVOID ANY EMBARRASSMENT or closure of your Events Parties you are to pay into the Government Account before the event,” the memo read.

 

According to Peoples Gazette, the accounts belong to Ikeja Local Government revenue office. In the Lagos State Local Government (Approved Collection) Law 2010, local government management have been authorised to charge levies within their environs but the law did not specifically state that local government management should charge events planners the N20,000 as stated in the memo.

 

The law also states that defaulters of levies due for payment have committed an offence which would warrant them paying double of the amount to the authorities.

 

Government Authority under this or any other Law commits an offence and shall, in addition to any penalty stipulated in any other relevant law or bye-law, be liable to pay a sum equal to 2 times the amount for which he is in default.

  1. The 3-week-old strike by the Nigerian Labour Congress in Nasarawa has been suspended after an agreement was reached with the state government in Lafia.

    Recall that on June 15th, 2021, the Ogarnised Labour embarked on a strike action to press home its demands for full implementation of the new national minimum wage, pending promotion and salary arrears among other welfare issues for the state’s workforce.

    Comrade Yusuf Iya, the state chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), announced the immediate suspension of the strike shortly after signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the government.

    He explained that the state government had agreed to commence the implementation of over 10 years of outstanding promotions of workers from August 2021.

    The 3-week-old strike by the Nigerian Labour Congress in Nasarawa has been suspended after an agreement was reached with the state government in Lafia.

    Recall that on June 15th, 2021, the Ogarnised Labour embarked on a strike action to press home its demands for full implementation of the new national minimum wage, pending promotion and salary arrears among other welfare issues for the state’s workforce.

    Comrade Yusuf Iya, the state chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), announced the immediate suspension of the strike shortly after signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the government.

    He directed workers to resume their duty posts with effect from July 6th.

    Iya expressed appreciation to traditional rulers and other stakeholders for their intervention in the resolution of the face-off.

    Dr Abdulkarim Kana, the state’s Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, read the agreement before labour leaders and representatives of government after the meeting led by the Head of Service, Abari Aboki, signed in the presence of Gov. Abdullahi Sule.

    He explained that the state government had agreed to commence the implementation of over 10 years of outstanding promotions of workers from August 2021.
