To Federal Govt: Begin To Tax Vehicles In Nigeria by badoh(m): 7:48am On Sep 21, 2019
One if the best tools of fighting corruption and money laundering in Nigeria is for the government to initiate taxation on vehicles in Nigeria as it is done in U.K. This approach from my own point of view should be targeted at our politicians that embezzle public funds and use it to acquire properties(automobiles inclusive). I heard story of a former governor that has a garage in his house with not less than 40cars parked unused when he is not a car dealer. Imagine if each of those cars are heavily taxed, they will be forced to dispose them off. Why should somebody be having more than 2 cars and some don't have at all. It will even reduce the number of vehicles plying our major roads and reduce the stress on these roads.

to own a car is also a crime? Your heads are not correct. Every car owner pay taxes and renew particulars of the vehicle every year with nothing less than #6500. And if it's passenger car, every park they enter and pick passenger, they pay levies.

the problem is not to pay tax but what they will do with the money after collecting it. What has government been doing with the once we have paid. No infrastructure, nothing nothing

And when the cost of transportation goes up, who suffers?
