Ogbadibo LG Terminates Revenue Contract With MC Development Company

Chairman of the Benue Inland Revenue Service (BIRS) Mrs. Mimi Azadpe Orubibi has demanded the arrest and prosecution of the Managing Director of MC Development Company, Mr. Joseph Orih and the recovery of N150m allegedly collected from various revenue collection points along highways in Ogbadibo local government area of the state.

This decision came following complains and evidence from various quarters on the illegal activities of Orih in the area.

The Benue Internal Revenue Service had on 7 September appointed a new consultant to collect haulage revenue on her behalf in Benue South (Zone C axis) with effect from the 1st October 2016.

However, Orih reportedly prevented the genuine revenue collectors from carrying out their lawful business in Ogbadibo.

He had reportedly collected over N150m, in the last three years, which the state government now wants him to cough out.

Earlier, the Ogbadibo Local Government Council had asked the company to vacate the area on the ground that his acclaimed contract entered with the local government contravenes the relevant extant state and local government laws, and therefore illegal.

The letter signed by the Director General Services and Administration (DGSA) of the council, Clement Idoko and copied to security agencies and the Chairman of the Benue State Internal Revenue Service among others asked Orih to vacate the area without delay.
