“This occasion is to unveil ALGON Seal for 2022 and carry out the National Assembly directive to ALGON/NULGE as regards the menace of multiple taxations, caused by the unwarranted and unlawful blocking of our highways by all and sundry in the name of government revenue,” Ogbogbo said.

“Government should reduce taxation on companies, boost electricity, an important commodity because without electricity how would companies function effectively, and also improve on our transportation systems.”

JOMSAN warned that without the necessary prerequisite, Nigeria’s ease of doing business rank would remain in the same range.

“The practice of stopping vehicles in order to sell unapproved and fake clearance certificates will henceforth be a thing of the past. The use of unauthorized associations to certify local government permits must also come to an end.”
