Demand Notice On Borehole Registration And License Not From OBLG - Abia Govt

The government of Abia state has said that the demand for borehole registration and licence is not from Obingwa local government authority.

 In a released endorsed by the honourable commissioner for information, Chief John Okiyi Kalu, Abia state government said that , "thattached demand notice did not emanate from the authorities of Obingwa LGA or Abia State Government. It is the handiwork of a revenue tout that the Government has identified and will soon punish according to the law".

"Obingwa LGA Chairman has confirmed the document to be FAKE and a FORGERY".

"Members of the public are hereby advised to ignore the said demand notice and report anyone parading same to the nearest police station".

"Meanwhile, it is important to note that those wishing to dig boreholes anywhere in the state must obtain proper permission from Abia State Water Board after payment of inspection and water analysis fees".

"Without proper regulation, we risk suffering the dangers of indiscriminate digging of boreholes with associated environmental and health risks to our people".

Okiyi also assured Abians that the government will continue to make necessary efforts to improve public water supply in the state with the full implementation of the new Aba and Umuahia water schemes soon to take off.

"We have released the list of all collectible state and LGA revenues in Abia State. Members of the public are advised to call 08184222428 to verify demand notices before payment to the designated bank accounts already released".

ABIANS ARE STRONGLY ADVISED NOT TO PAY CASH TO ANY REVENUE AGENT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE.
