The Federal Government has imposed generator tax on Abuja business owners. The government said this in order to cub environmental pollution caused by the use of generators.
According to them generators and other industrial machines pollute the environment and pose harm and danger to people living in the federal Capital Territory.
An annual levy has been imposed on banks, industries and ware houses using generators.
A notice signed by the director of Public Health of AMAC, Ahmed Haruna, stated that the levy was for discharging harmful substances from generators.
The notice reads as follows “Management of Abuja Municipal Area Council Environment Services (ESD) Bodies, wishes to notify you of levy/ fees due to Abuja Municipal Area of Council for Gaseous Emission Permit,” said the notice.
“This includes (the) discharge of harmful hazardous substance(s) into the air or the land and the water in Nigeria by the activities of industries, warehouse(s), bank(s), either from generator(s) or heavy-duty drilling, production, construction and manufacturing equipment, filling stations, etc.”
