The Kaduna State Internal Revenue Service (KADIRS) has sealed some branches of Access Bank, the Regional Office of Transmission Company of Nigeria and six other companies over tax liabilities amounting to N419.3 million.

 

According to the agency’s Head of Corporate Communications, Mr Zakari Muhammad, the affected bank and companies were closed based on a court order after they failed to settle their outstanding tax returns of N419.3 million.

 

He identified the companies as Access Bank – N249.9 million; Transmission Company of Nigeria’s Regional Office – N56.3 million; Transmission Company of Nigeria’s sub-regional office – N67.7 million; and Sky Express Airways – N5.4 million.

Others are Azman Air Services – N15.2 million; China Zhonghao Nigeria – N8.6 million; Indomie Noodle, Kaduna – N9.3 million; and Premier Feed Mills – N7 million.

 

Muhammad stated that KADIRS was empowered by law to seal the premises of organisations that fail to remit taxes due to the state, citing Section 104, sub-section 3 and 4 of the Personal Income Tax (Amendment) Act, 2011 and Section 37, sub-section 3 and 4 of Kaduna State Tax Codification and Consolidation Law, 2020, as the legal instruments.

‘it’s wicked and stupid! I don’t know how to respond to such’

 

That was a response from one of the aides to the Executive Governor of Oyo State, Governor Seyi Makinde when asked to confirm if truly the Governor recently acquired a private jet.

 

A report monitored online by papermache.com alleged that the Governor has joined the league of jet owners in Nigeria.

 

Governor Makinde was said to have been spotted at the Felix Houphouet Airport, Abidjan alighting from the aircraft alongside, Alhaji Azeem Gbolarumi and Alhaji Bisi Olopoeniyan at the just concluded AFCON finals.

 

This stemmed the report that the Governor has just acquired the private jet for his private use.

 

Another aide of the Governor who refused to add his name, citing reasons that he wasn’t allowed to make official comments responded to the allegation as ‘funny! How can you say somebody bought a jet because he alighted from it?’.
