Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has said the President Mohammadu Buhari led All Progressives Congress (APC) federal government desire was to tax Nigerians to death, saying; “Nigerians must resist any attempt to impose new tax on them.”
The governor described the federal government’s plan to increase the cost of data as wicked, adding that “Most Nigerians are still alive today because they are kept busy by their access to social media.
He hailed the Senate for directing the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) to suspend the planned increment, saying; “The government must be sensitive to the plight of the people. Today, despite all the taxes and increments in services rendered by federal government agencies, minimum wage has remained at N18, 000 while millions of jobs have been lost. Do they want Nigerians to pay with their blood?”
