Anambra State Chapter of the National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools, NAPPS has called on the state governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo to urgently intervene and rescue private schools from the challenges of multiple taxation, illegal levies and disparities in other payments.
They lamented why the State Government Tax Agencies are taxing them exorbitant taxes.
The association also called on regulatory agencies of the state government to be more effective to enhance the quality of education in the State.
The State Chairman of the Association, Mrs. Amaka Ezedebego made the call during the Association 2022 Maiden Education Convention, with the Theme; Applying Best Practices In Achieving Educational Goals, held at Alexander David’s Hall, Awka, over the weekend.
She said, “The challenges facing private schools in Anambra State are overwhelming. The major challenge is the lack of effective regulatory bodies that should regulate our activities and provide support for schools in terms of accreditation and protection from several levies and taxes from the concerned agencies.”
“They see us as milk. We pay multiple taxation and illegal levies. We are tired of paying multiple taxes, illegal levies to Anambra govt agencies.
“We are using this medium to call on the state governor, Prof. Chukwuma Charles Soludo, to consider our plight and save us”, she appealed.
