Permanent Secretary of the Ogun State Ministry of Finance, Alhaji Hassan Adekunle at a meeting with members of the State chapter of Hoteliers Association of Nigeria, said state government has offered a 75 per cent discount to operators of hotels in the state.
He said while this will enable them settle their outstanding arrears on land use and amenities charge, all hotel owners are expected to pay up the current charge for 2021 and payment of 25 percent of arrears covering 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020 owed by such operators.
