Ambode admits that businesses are groaning under heavy tax

The Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode has hinted that the state government is not oblivious to the groans of companies due to the heavy tax they pay to the state.

Ambode made this apparent admission of guilt on Monday at the 14th Annual Lecture of the Centre for Values in Leadership (CVL) themed: “Living Well Together, Tomorrow: The Challenge Of Africa’s Future Cities,” and held at Muson Centre in Onikan.

“We are also embarking on massive reform in the waste and sanitation management system. I don’t like the way the city is and the Private Sector Participants (PSP) collectors are not having enough capacity to do it but again should I tax people to death, the answer is no. I don’t want to tax people and so we need this partnership with the private sector so that they can invest in the sanitation management of the city and in no time maybe by July, the city will change forever,” he said while speaking on some of the projects the state government is planning to embark on.
