Kogi govt hires consultant to levy bakers for every loaf of bread

2 min read

The Kogi State Government has hired a consultant to levy bakers and caterers for every single loaf of bread and confectionery they produce in the state.

The state’s Ministry of Commerce and Industry appointed Musag Enterprises as the consultant.

The ministry made the introduction on November 9, through a memo signed by the Commissioner’s Permanent Secretary, Usman Ibrahim.

The memo was addressed to the chairperson, Association of Master bakers and Caterers of Nigeria, Kogi State branch.

The collection of the levy will start from November 16, 2020.

This levy is coming at a time when entrepreneurs and small business owners have barely recovered from the hit of the pandemic on economic activities.

A loaf of bread sells for as low as N70 in the state, but it is yet unclear how much will be levied on each loaf.

The spokesperson to the Kogi State government, Onongwu Mohammed, when contacted by PREMIUM TIMES promised to get back to the newspaper but has not done so as of press time.

The consultant, Musag Integrated Enterprises, with Registration Number 2476494, is a business name owned by one Shagiru Mohammed Mustapha.

The company was registered on February 2, 2017. Its business address is given in registration papers as 19 Navy Road, Apapa, Lagos. The entity’s nature of business is unclear.

The memo

“We write to introduce the above mentioned as the Consultant appointed by the Kogi State Ministry of Commerce and Industry, to collect the above-mentioned levy from all Master Bakers and Caterers doing business in and across Kogi State.

“You are, therefore, required to avail them all necessary cooperation to enable them to carry out their assignment.
