Are you sure that everyone that owns duplex in Lagos we pay 3 Million per year ? i thought the fee is for only public houses landlord rented out to people .Even other state i own property i rented out to people i have never pay any money since 10 years i build the house and nobody have bring any bill to me to pay.

Well, it was sent via social media so I'd want to assume maybe there are errors there but I've heard same thing fro about two sources. Let's wait for them to come out with an official statement that we can hold them by. There used to be a template for calculating this thing in the past. I don't know how they suddenly arrived at the new figures. Even registration of motor vehicles, has shot up to 100k for cars with less than 3.0cc engine and cars with 3.0cc and above engine, would cough out 200k for registration. Meaning, if your vehicle engine is above 3.0ltr capacity, registering it would cost 200k. That's insane.

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.

Bro, unfortunately tenants are the ones that would be at the receiving end of the hike. Ambode needs to reverse it. This guy is seriously messing up. From visionscape scam to streetlight spending robbery, hike in toll gate fee and now land use decree siphoning? Oh common!

Will you keep quiet,clearly you are not grown enough to pay tax that’s why you don’t understand the gravity of the situation,we are not complaining about tax payment,the main argument is the 400% increase.

APC has overstayed their welcome in Lagos. The earlier Lagosians stop playing ethnic policy, the better. Beauty of democracy is when party changes from time to time. A party kept in government for too long becomes daring and insensitive. What is the meaning of land use charge in the first instance? People are hailing ambode for developing Lagos. What many don't understand is that opening up many projects all at once is a guarantee that many won't be completed. They are probably looking for money to complete their many projects. Too many cooks, white man says spoil the broth.

Stop it. angry I have spoken to several Yoruba landlords in Lagos, and they are very upset about the charges! sad Yes, the land use charge is a valid law in Lagos. But Ambode should not use it as a means of extortion. A person who was paying 140,000 naira as LUC last year, is now suddenly told to pay 2 million naira as LUC, for this year. And you have given him just 30 days to do so. Is he going to steal to pay it? Or is the current govt trying to pauperise landlords in Lagos? Does Ambode not realise that landlords would automatically increase house rents for their tenants, in order to make up for the increase in LUC?

Do you have a property in Lagos? Or you're just trying to be stupid for fun? Is it everything you see on Nairaland that you use in playing politics/tribal sentiments? Have you thought of the implications of this stupid step taken by the Lagos state govt?

From the circular I got that was sent on social media, everyone who owns a duplex,would pay as much as 3m per year for tenement rate. How does it sound to you that someone would have a property and still pay so much like he or she is paying rent in a highbrow part of Lagos? At the end of the day when the tax burden is passed down to the people renting those properties and they cannot pay, they get evicted and become homeless.

Can you just imagine the circle of commotion it would cause? The most annoying part is that most of you who support all these stupid policies of APC govt in Lagos and Nigeria, are usually the worst hit. I know somebody who almost fought me because he was supporting buhari in 2015. Today, hunger has dried him up and makes him look like an aids patient. When he wears his shirts, they look like parachute on him. If you see topics and you don't have any reasonable comments to post,just keep quiet and read comments, rather than making a fool of yourself.

You have hit da nail on da head! sad

It's all lies. Is it too much to pay #30,000 on property that worth #20m that occupies owner and tenant? Go and read it instead of making every thing political
Don't be silly. angry Is it every Lagos landlord that is being charged 30,000 naira per annum as a flat rate for LUC, on a property worth 20 million? For your information, some people who were paying 78,000 as LUC last year are being asked to pay almost 400,000 naira this year, as LUC. Others who were paying 140,000 naira as LUC last year, are being told to pay almost 2 million this year as LUC. And they have been given only 30 days to make full payment, or a penalty kicks in. Where are they going to get money to pay the difference in price? Are they expected to steal? Do you honestly think the landlords will NOT increase the rent of their tenants, in order to cover the price increase?

I didn't even know this. undecided Can you imagine the nonsense? angry I will just register my car in Ogun state next door, and bring it to Lagos. I will not spend up to 30k for the registration. Even Abuja registration does not cost up to that, sef. Ambode will just mess himself up, with his continuous extortion of Lagos residents.

Honestly, I feel like flogging Ambode right now. His policies are ill-conceived and badly executed! shocked I was one of those that felt he could continue Fashola's legacy, but no, he has turned round to rubbish everything Fashola our dear BRF left behind, and he is running amok like a bull in a china shop. He is just increasing everything in sight, with no consideration for the masses, and no regard for their ability to pay. Nansense! angry

No doubt everybody including the few Yoruba property owners in Lagos will also pay any proposed tax, but good planners like those in bigger cities like London, NYC, and even Atlanta will think about long term consequences of any plan.

You can't push for Yorubaism in Lagos, and at the same time maintain or expand your tax base that includes the very other people you're trying to exclude.

Someone should tell the mentally slow governor that there's a reason why most World big cities have 4-5 language interpretation services at every public place, because they want to make people feel welcome.
People spend money and pay taxes when they feel welcome. Especially, since he likes the money.

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.
