Following the publication of the first batch on Ground Rent defaulters across the state in the Vanguard and Daily Independence Newspapers of Wednesday the 18th October, 2017, the Delta State Committee on Ground Rent recently held a closed door consultation meeting with the Board of Internal Revenue at the Revenue House, Asaba.

The Secretary to the Committee, Dr. Frank Nwugo Esq. who briefed the press in an interview after the closed door consultation meeting said it was to conclude on the setting up of a Task Force for the enforcement and full compliance in the recovery of Ground Rent liabilities due to the Delta State Government.

He therefore stressed the readiness of the Delta State Government to take all necessary measures including but not limited to revocation of all interest on lands in which the lease holders are in default of Ground Rent payment and recover all outstanding liabilities therefrom.

Dr. Nwugo however enjoined all Ground Rent defaulters to comply in accordance with relevant laws to clear their outstanding liabilities as published to avoid the inevitable consequences as “A stitch in time saves nine”.
