Country that doesn't know the importance of tax , politicians in Nigeria think taxes are for personal use hence you as a citizen don't even feel the benefit of the taxes you gave

Very poor indeed from Firs. How are they going to meet up the N8 thrillion($22 billion) Target if they only generated N400 billion in 4 months. Going by this they will make only N1.2 thrillion at the end of the year.

state should be allowed to generate their own tax and pays 15% to the federal govt.imagine zamfara bring 2.834milion and taking 969.376milion it's injustice.
