Chairman of the Abuja Municipal Area Council AMAC,Christopher Maikalangu, has called on President Bola Tinubu, security agencies, and relevant authorities, to call the Federal Capital Territory Internal Revenue Service FCT-IRS to order with regard to revenue collection.

Speaking at a news conference, Maikalangu, said the council has not signed any agreement with FCT-IRS concerning revenue collection.

He said the agency is harassing residents by asking them to pay the same taxes they had already paid to AMAC, thereby opening ways to double taxation, and that a court had already ruled that AMAC should not pass over the role of revenue collection to a third party, hence the FCT-IRS needs to explain where it derived its powers for collecting revenue on behalf of AMAC from.

Maikalangu said the bFCT-IRS was preparing a way for anarchy and a breakdown of law and order by harassing AMAC residents for revenue, including the “Park and Pay” policy which is under the jurisdiction of AMAC.
