ENUGU, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA)- APC chieftain, Tajudeen Olusi, a member of the Governance Advisory Council (GAC) in Lagos, has advised Nigerians to pay their taxes and duties regularly to assist the government in meeting its responsibility.
GAC is the highest decision-making body of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos.
Mr Olusi disclosed this at the 10th Assembly inaugural reception for Eti-Osa constituency II in Ikoyi, organised by a member representing the area, Gbolahan Yishawu, on Sunday.
Addressing journalists on the sideline of the ceremony, Mr Olusi said when citizens pay their taxes regularly, the government would be in a better position to discharge its responsibilities to the citizens adequately.
“I have listened to people on radio and television asking the government to do this and that. But one thing is missing, the responsibility of ordinary Nigerians.
“They need to discharge their duties in the prompt payment of their taxes and duties,” stated the APC chieftain. “In the light of this, I urged eligible taxpayers to embrace the culture of paying taxes because it is a demonstration of one’s faith in his country.”
