The Anambra State Chapter of the National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools, also known as NAPPS, made a request to the governor of the state, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, imploring him to intervene immediately and save private schools from the difficulties of multiple taxation, illegal levies, and disparities in other payments.

They lamented the fact that the tax agencies of the state government were charging them high rates of taxation.

Additionally, the group demanded that state government regulating bodies become more efficient in order to improve the overall level of education provided across the state.

The appeal was made by the State Chairman of the Association, Mrs. Amaka Ezedebego, at the Association 2022 Maiden Education Convention, which was held at Alexander David’s Hall in Awka over the weekend. The convention had the theme “Applying Best Practices In Achieving Educational Goals.”

She said that the difficulties that private schools in the state of Anambra are experiencing are tremendous. The absence of adequate regulatory authorities that should govern our operations and give assistance for schools in terms of accreditation and protection from many levies and taxes from the involved agencies is the most significant obstacle.

“They stare at us like milk. We are subjected to a multitude of taxes as well as unlawful charges. We are sick and weary of being subjected to a multitude of fees and illegitimate charges by various Anambra government departments.

She pleaded with the state governor, Prof. Chukwuma Charles Soludo, “to consider our suffering and rescue us.” “We are utilising this means to call on the state governor,” she said.
