The Awka Chamber of Commerce Industry Mines and Agriculture (AWKACCIMA), has called on Gov. Chukwuma Soludo of Anambra to approve the consolidated tax structure being advocated for by the private sector.

Chuddy Egemba, President of AWKACCIMA, made this assertion when he received Chief Emeka Obegolu, President of Abuja Chamber of Commerce Industry Mines and Agriculture, in his office on Friday.

According to him, unifying and consolidating the various taxes and levies into one would address the challenge of multiple taxation in the state.

He said though businesses in Anambra, like other states, were passing through difficult times as a result of challenges with foreign exchange, power and high cost of production, there were areas the state could intervene to help investments survive.

Egemba called for greater synergy between Organized Private Sector (OPS) and government for better understanding and cooperation as both needed each other to survive.


“We are calling for unified or consolidated taxes as this will check the problem of multiple taxation that businesses are subjected to.

“We are non-partisan, we are businesses so all we ask for is an improved operational environment,” he said.
