He also stressed that indigenes of Calabar municipal council should be drafted into the revenue committee to correct the lopsidedness that has been experienced in the echelon of the union, judging that it’s very improper for the union to be generating revenue meanwhile the people aren’t direct beneficiaries. The mayor appealed to the state governor to revisit the taxation policy especially when non low income earners are adamant to pay taxes even when they weren’t captured in the tax exemption policy.
