VAT : Letter to the Rt Honourable Olakunle Taiwo Oluomo, Speaker, Ogun State House of Assembly.


Value Added Tax : Need for legislative actions.

Permit me to quickly commend you on your various activities / achievements since you assumed duties as the Speaker of  Ogun State House of Assembly in 2019. Your leadership style is examplary. 

The Ogun State House of Assembly is not only peaceful but progressive due to your valuable experience, capacity and love for the good people of Ogun State. Mr Speaker, kudos to you Sir.

Mr Speaker Sir, I am sure that you're following the current National debate on Value Added Tax (VAT), I am also sure that as an experienced Lawmaker, all the legal issues surrounding VAT are well clear to you Sir. 

The law empowers State Governments to collect taxes including VAT ( Ogun State inclusive) for the rapid growth and development of any given State.

The present arrangement as it concerns VAT is no longer fashionable and acceptable. Rubbing Peter to pay Paul is crime against humanity.

On this note Mr Speaker Sir, I hereby humbly request that you personally sponsor a bill that will empower Ogun State Government to as a matter of urgency take over the collection of all forms of taxes in Ogun State inclusive of the Value Added Tax.

I am very sure that once this VAT bill is eventually passed by the Ogun State House of Assembly, our amiable Executive Governor,  Prince Dapo Abiodun MFR will definitely assent to the bill by signing it to become law. The aguement that Governors that are looking for second term will never support any bill on VAT has been defeated by Governor Sanwoolu of Lagos.

The benefits of signing the bill into law are enormous :

Ogun State Government will generate / have more revenues to develop the State.

The various road taxes levied on Okada Riders / commercial vehicles operators will reduce drastically thereby making live more abundant for them and their dependants.

Tuition fees payable in our various higher Institutions will also be reduced drastically thereby reducing the burdens of the parents.

Ogun State roads will definitely wear new look, road crashes will be reduced, social services / security will surely be improved upon.

The various abandoned Ogun State model schools will surely be put to use as the present occupants ( reptiles, rodents ) will be served quit notice.

These and many other benefits are bond to be enjoyed by the the good people of Ogun State.

Mr Speaker Sir, the time to act is now. Let's make hay while the sun shines.

By the time that we possess our possessions and Ogun State IGR is greatly improved, I am glad that we have a good / prudent Manager in the person of His Excellency, Prince Dapo Abiodun MFR, the Executive Governor of Ogun State who will put our common resources into proper use and live will be abundant for all.

God bless Ogun State. God bless Nigeria.

Thank you and God bless Mr Speaker.

Omo Ogun Ise yaa.

Prince Taiwo Nodiru
