Rochas Okorocha, governor of Imo state, has ordered all “leviable adults” in the state to pay N3,000 each as “development levy”.

According to a statement by Louis Duru, the state commissioner for community government, culture and traditional affairs, the money is to be used for  “autonomous community adult development”.

He added that recognised communities will serve as the collectors and they are to pay not less than N6 million each.
