“He informed the states what their positions are and the outstanding due to the states of about N41bn. He believes the states have to pay. 

He came up also with new technique and system that will help automatic collection of taxes both VAT and withholding tax. I think the states take and are willing to pay their outstanding," he said.

He said the council was also told that from January to date, about N40bn was remitted from the states.

“This has a significant increase compared to what happened last year,’’ he said.
