The Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON) in collaboration with the relevant ministries, agencies and the private sector, has commenced the National Anti-Multiple Taxation Scheme (NAMTAXS) and National Transit Insurance Scheme (NATIS) for road users nationwide.
The move, ALGON’s NEC Committee Chairman on NAMTAXS/NATIS Yusuf Garuba Alkalari said, was to support the federal government’s Economic Sustainability Programme (ESP) by providing the enabling environment for ease of doing business.
In compliance with the presidential approval banning illegal collection of taxes, levies and fees on agricultural produce, agro-allied products and general goods on the roads, ALGON said it was poised to ensure all illegal road blocks are dismantled to reduce high cost of goods caused by illegal fees on haulage.
NAMTAXS, the body said, was structured to ensuring seamless movement of cargo, goods and services on the roads.
