Adams Oshiomole Shuts Down NTA and National Museum In Benin


Adams Oshiomole

Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomole, has ordered the shutting down of Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) Zonal Headquarters and the National Museum located in Benin City.

This report says this move by the Governor, was implemented by the Edo State Board of Internal Revenue for issues of NTA office ‘non-remittance of PAYE worth close to N20M’.

The National Museum located at King’s Square has also faced similar fate for allegedly ‘collecting revenue for social events in the museum’s premises worth about N6M.

Ehi Omokhua, the Chairman of Amalgamated Union of Public Corporation and Trade Recreational Employment, Benin Museum Chapter says no letter of notice was served before the museum was closed.

‘The government had stopped the collection of revenue for social events. Where do they expect us to get remittance to pay? We see the closure as barbaric and autocratic in a democratic dispensation’, Omokhua told The Nation newspaper.

But the Oseni Elamah, chairman of the Revenue Board, says they have evidence that the museum officials have been illegally collecting funds from people. ‘They are illegally collecting revenue they are not supposed to collect. The land belongs to the government. They collected revenue throughout December. They are lying’, Elamah said.
