The Lagos State governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Jimi Agbaje, has assured the residents of not paying heavy or light taxes, but will pay fair taxes instead.
Agbaje made this known at a debate expected to have been attended by the All Progressives Congress (APC) and PDP Lagos State governorship candidates, organised by Channels Television in collaboration with the Enough Is Enough Nigeria (EIE) on Sunday.
The APC governorship candidate, Akinwunmi Ambode, was absent.
Mr Agbaje stressed that the government had always depended on tax for development, but that if elected, his administration would ensure Lagos residents (Lagosians) pay fair taxes.
He said the present administration was taking advantage of regulatory agencies, noting that it was generating tax in the wrong means.
He said that he was called a tax invader due to politics. Agbaje said his company was not owing any tax. “I got a letter from the state government, inquiring how I have been paying my land use charges.”
