IT is now compulsory for parents and wards of children benefiting from free education and healthcare services in Akwa Ibom State to show evidence of tax payment.
Governor Godswill Akpabio, who gave the directive after signing the 2014 Appropriation Bill into law, noted that public servants were also affected by the directive.

He said: “The Ministry of Finance and Board of Internal Revenue must carry out taxpayers’ registration of every worker in the state.”
He said that the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Education must make sure that the parents’ Tax Identification Number, TIN, was given before a child could benefit from free services.
