OVER N500 million debt is being owed to Anambra by gaming operators doing business in different parts of the state, accruing from non-payment of gaming permits.

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Anambra State Internal Revenue Service (AIRS), Dr. David Nzekwu, disclosed this at a post-enforcement briefing in Awka yesterday.

According to him, the revenue administration agency will stop at nothing to ensure that all the debts are recovered for the state government to boost internally generated revenue (IGR),

explaining that the agency will soon commence its enforcement drives to compel defaulting gaming operators to pay for their permits, starting from major areas in Awka metropolis where a significant number of gaming operators have not complied.

Speaking at the occasion, Head of Legal and Enforcement Unit AIRS, David Onyilofior, stated about eleven gaming centres had been notified while other centres locked up their offices and fled on getting wind of the enforcement team’s visit, promising to continue with the exercise to make revenue defaulters to sit up in regular payment of tax and rates.
