Obasanjo Farms Shut Down By Oyo State Over Refusal To Pay Tax

The Oyo State government yesterday sealed Obasanjo Farms and 15 other businesses over failure to pay the state’s Environmental Development Levy.

The enforcement order was executed by the state’s inter-ministerial enforcement unit being coordinated by the Board of Internal Revenue.

Other companies affected by the order included Black Horse, Heinemann Educational Books, Lister Flour Mills, Evans Brother, Butterfield bakery, Chicken Republic, MRS oil and Rasmed Publicity.

Chairman of the board, Bicci Alli, told journalists that the order became necessary after the failure of the companies to comply with the state tax laws’ directives despite being served reminders on several occasions.

He said;

We went to restrain some corporate organisations that failed to pay what is due to the Oyo State government after giving due notices, demand notices and even public notices to that effect and they failed to pay.

“So we went to those places to stop them from having access to their premises until they comply with the directive and do the right thing.”

    So, they need to tell all these fools the importance of Taxation? No wonder your (Nigeria) Military is weak, you don’t have good roads, you don’t have adequate education (imagine how your congress, governors, president are running the country), all schools are in shambles, no healthcare ( your President goes abroad seeking one anyway ) because Hospitals in Nigeria, are nothing compared to Horse’s Stables, Prisons ( no new ones since the 60’s ) are death traps, Bridges are death traps, Drink water and you’re drinking contaminants. No need to say, You are paying for darkness in Nigeria and not Electricity. Can I go on?

    So if everyone is infatuated and crazy about American greatness, ask them to teach these Nigerian fools and Companies the importance of Paying Taxes. Nigerians grew up not knowing this.

    Hmmmm, interesting that Internal Revenue establishment is making effort to get tax from sources other than poor civil servants.

    Excellent move, a billionaire ex leader with supposed “enlightenment” thinks he is god. Please don’t forget to add administrative fee and daily interests to it, backward old fool.
