Religious Leaders Kick Against Security Levies On Churches, Mosques In Oyo by Nigeriapen1: 8:03am On Dec 02
News By NIGERIAPEN.COM.NG

Religious leaders have kicked against security levies imposed on churches and mosques by the Oyo State government, describing it as “unrealistic.”

The state government had during a security summit held on Tuesday announced that religious organisations were also included in security levies.

Churches and mosques, according to the Section 11(4) of the Security Trust Fund Law 2017 of the state, will pay between N20,000 and N60,000 yearly, depending on the size of the religious centre.

Apart from churches and mosques, manufacturing companies would also pay between N80,000 and N100,000 depending on their sizes while agricultural companies would pay N50,000.

Reacting to the levy, the Founder and Spiritual Head of Shafaudeen in Islam, Professor Sabit Ariyo Olagoke, described the levy as “ ill-timed, exploitative and ungodly.”

If there will be transparency in the Administration of the fund and if it will lead to improvement in security, then why not.

I live in Oyo State, Ibadan to be precise.
I pay N10,000/month for a private security (Just my flat)
I’ve not had power for over 3 months now and power my flat with a minimum of 3k daily (fuel)
The roads are extremely BAD that I use at lease 20k to service my car monthly.
I buy 7k water every 2 months.
I can authoritatively tell you Ajimobi is a raving mad dog that is not fit to govern a house, they made a great mistake in Oyo State which they should change by 2019 by despising the wereh penkelesi.
