Nigerians Working In German Embassy Accuse Foreign Affairs Minister Of Insensiti by goodsolomon: 4:27am On May 29, 2018
Nigeria staffs working in German Embassy are bewailing the double high taxes charged them by both Nigeria Government and their employer – German Government.

The workers who spoke to our General Investigation Editor accused the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama and his team of insensitivity, tactlessness and outright ignorance of their functions and duties.

According to our source:


“The following series of complaints of double taxation of the Nigerian staff working in Germany Embassy, the Embassy magnanimously promised to look into the case. That led to instituting a team made up of German delegates and delegates from Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The first meeting was held. Germany Embassy gave their own position that following their laws, people working for German Government pay tax. They opted for a middle way with Nigeria Federal Inland Revenue, through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

According to German Law, people working for GERMAN government pay taxes- Good.

According to Nigerian Law people working in Nigeria pay taxes- Good.

They should either conform to German laws and Nigerian laws or resign start hawking gala in traffic.

Some unemployed people won't mind paying taxes to a third revenue collector just to get the job.

And it's not just Germany.

US citizens are also required to pay taxes on income they earn internationally.

They need to quit and go hawk gala as suggested. Germany didn't become what it is if the people didn't pay taxes.

Let us learn how to pay tax.

The truth in this country is that tax collected are not used for it's purposes.
It ends up in individual pockets

They forgot working in an embassy or high commission is akin to working in that country? You need to pay tax while in there and when you step out your local laws takes effect so you need to pay local tax too grin
