The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Ikeja Branch, says its would march against the revised Land Use Charge on Tuesday March 13 if Governor Akinwunmi Ambode failed to reverse the “hell tax”.

Chairman of the Branch, Mr. Adesina Ogunlana, told newsmen on Wednesday that protest will start from the Branch Secretariat in Ikeja down to the Lagos State Secretariat in Alausa.
He disclosed that the march had been tagged “Hell Tax Must Go”.
Ogunlana said: “Few weeks ago, Lagosians woke up to learn about the hyper-inflated rate of the so called “Land Use Charge” which the Governor of Lagos has escalated upwards 400 percent.
“Recently, one of our colleagues who regularly pay the sum of under N140,000 as LUC for office building received a notice of the LUC demand, he is now to pay the amount of N2 million.
“If these tax rates are allowed, Lagos state would be turned into a ‘Toxic Environment and a living hell’ for Lagosians.”
Ogunlana warned that the increase in property tax of the LUC will have an adverse effect on all other services as owners of properties and services will automatically transfer other financial burdens to their customers.
“My view is that the government of Lagos State has lost sync with the difficult and harsh realities of life of the people of Lagos and has taken their support and goodwill for his government for granted.”
“Life will become not only too expensive but volatile and dangerous.
“The government cannot hide under “Developing Lagos into a Mega Smart City” to kill Lagosians with Pharaoic Taxes,” the legal practitioner said.

Rather than go to court, lawyers want to "march" through the streets?

Lawyers and threats. Why no first get a court order to prevent the government from being able to implement those ridiculous charges, and then start negotiations, instead of issuing threats like NASU and NURTW?

NBA is obviously not serious. If they are so pained about the law, they should challenge it in court instead of threatening to embark on a protest that will achieve nothing.

This governor is not realistic. You can't enforce Yoruba language on every Lagosian, "it's a Yoruba city", and you turn around to enforce oncreased taxation on non-Yoruba citu dwellers. That's retarrrrdwd.

When reasonable people were speaking against this devilish bill from hell, afonjas thought we were hating on their no mans land.
The bill makes no sense and must be resisted by all well meaning lagosians.

The land use charge is a valid law in Lagos. Whoever owns a landed property in Lagos is under obligation to pay. Any non Yoruba that is not willing to pay should move his/her property out of Lagos. Nobody is forcing non Yoruba's to remain in Lagos compulsory.

This gov. Ambode, by the time he leaves office, it's either that most of the entrepreneur class have left Lagos, or he sparks up a tribal crisis in Lagos.


For God's sake, Lagos is a cosmopolitan City, the city of Lagos was built by Nigeria's oil revenues and by Nigerians from all parts of Nigeria.

When will Nigerian politicians become rational? In advanced climes such tax is given to multinational companies but this buffoon has modified what he copied out of sheer greed and is about to suffocate those he is trying to build.

gani fawehimi would have taken him to court instead of engaging in circus protest.
They obviously want to exploit the people to bolster their war chest for one jagajaga to use on reclaiming waning influence.
I think it's high time we try another party in lagos. I had prematurely praised this administration of performance. fashola performed and he didn't overburden the people.
That's why we don't need public servants with godfathers. from 400% increase in land use charge to increase in cost of survey and toll fee without any value added service.
