ASABA – Newspaper vendors in Asaba, Delta capital, collect N10 from readers who preferred to read papers at newsstands instead buying them to save cost.

Mr Azuibuike Emmanuel who sells newspapers at popular Ibusa Junction told News Agency (NAN) Sunday that most readers preferred paying N10 and reading the dailies to buying them.

Azubuike said that he decided to introduce the levy since the readers, most whom were unemployed, craved for information but could afford to buy the newspapers. He said that he could longer tolerate reading the papers free because he was making huge sales like he made in the past.


Miss Abigail Onwuzulike also told NAN at the Junction newsstand that she also charged each of such readers N10 to read the headline since they did want to buy.

Onwuzulike said that some of them even preferred pairing with in paying the amount to be allowed to flip through the papers together.

She added that she had been able to realise some from the levy to augment the income she made from sales. (NAN)
