Normal rates of N50 per drop in taxis increased to N100 while the distances which as at yesterday cost between NGN100 and NGN150 increased to between NGN150 and NGN200.
 Sources blame the situation on a face-off between PMAN and the state with PMAN directing fueling stations to shut down until certain issues including multiple taxation and harassment of staff by ‘thugs’ and ‘agents’ employed by government are addressed.
The state government has been accused of arbitrary and multiple taxation despite public pronouncements by the Governor, Senator Ben Ayade that taxation is not the solution to the financial constraints been faced by the state.
However, new boards, agencies and commissions created by him in the past one year have become noted for their nose for tax.

“The Carbon Emissions Board has almost become synonymous with the word taxation, because they have levies for vehicles, restaurants that cook with firewood or use generators and what have you,” a source revealed.
