In his response, Wike charged the elite to pay their taxes so as to enable government to carry out more developmental projects.

“What we are doing now is not within the area councils. This is the big men’s place. But when they tell them to pay tax now, they will begin to complain. They are happy the road is being resurfaced, but ask them where will the money come from if not through tax.,” Wike said.
