The Kuje Area Council said it has concluded plans to begin the collection of tenement rates to enhance the councils Internally Generated Revenue (IGR).
Chairman of the Council, Alhaji Abdullahi Suleiman Sabo, made this known in Kuje during a town hall meeting with stakeholders and officials of the Department of Area Council, Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA).
He said the tenement rates if properly harnessed would bring about infrastructural development and job creation in the area .
Sabo said suspension had been earlier placed on the collection of tenement rates in the councils but has now been lifted, and collection will resume soon.
The Chairman appealed to members of the public to make all payments to the appropriate quarters and visit the council for any clarification.
He said the area council was asked to make necessary submissions to the National Assembly with a view to studying and harmonising grey areas as well as proffering lasting solutions to the impasse.
