The Anambra State Government has said it will commence the arrest of political aspirants in the state who do not pay their taxes and levies accordingly.
The Managing Director, Anambra State Signage and Advertising Agency, Mr Jude Emecheta, stated this in an interview with newsmen in his office on Thursday.
He said the exercise was not a witch-hunt of any political party in the state as being speculated.
He debunked the claim that it was a punitive measure by the All Progressive Grand Alliance to gag other political parties ahead of next year’s general election.
Emecheta said arrangements had been concluded to arrest such politicians and impound their vehicles to commit them to pay or prosecute them as appropriate.
He said the allegation that the measure was a witch-hunt of the opposition was unfounded and unfair to the state government.
He said demand notices were sent to political parties in the state demanding their compliance.
He added, “No vehicle has been impounded for now. We only started the sensitisation; the implementation will commence next week
“There is no law that says APGA members not pay such taxes and levies; it cuts across all political parties in the state.
