Buhari Begs Nigerians To Stop Hiding Monies In Foreign Land
Nigeria President, Muhammadu Buhari has begs Nigerians to stop hiding monies meant to develop the nation in foreign countries, in a bid to avoid paying tax.
Mr President who gave the warning on Wednesday in United Kingdom according to a statement signed by Mr Femi Adesina, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President, said, “Hiding monies overseas, evading taxes by manipulation, and other unwholesome practices, have never developed a country, and for Nigeria to attain her true potential, these must stop.
“For a nation of people who are competitive and driven, it is not a pride that we are the lowest performer in tax to GDP, not just in Africa, but in the world. Nigeria’s growth needs are such that every Nigerian must do his duty to his nation, to his neighbour, and to himself”.
He met the Archbishop alongside the High Commission of Nigeria to United Kingdom, George Adesola Oguntade, the Secretary General Worldwide of Anglican Communion Archbishop, Josiah Idowu-Fearon, among others.
