The Nigeria Customs Service has called on the federal government to broaden its excise tax net to include carbonated drinks.

The Comptroller General of the Service, Col. Hameed Ali (rtd), made the call at a public hearing by the House of Representatives Committee on Finance on Thursday.

He said the move will help the service step up its efforts in revenue collection to meet up its revenue target.

According to him, as at present, excise duty is being collected on alcoholic beverages and tobacco because of their effects on health.

He, therefore, said that carbonated drinks are also injurious to health like tobacco and alcohol, saying as such, they should be included in excise duty payable commodities.

With all the money they are generating from tax, they will still go and borrow money from China to perform every little project.

What then are they using all the generated revenue for?

We are finished in this country .



Who did we offend?
See my people if you dont understand what am talking about lemme explain better.
The fact that I earn over 500k from my business monthly and still am struggling to make ends meet like, am struggling to live like i want to live still baffles me. Like before you withdraw 100k say nah for weekly up keep, before mid week of the same week you withdrew it its gone. No club, no extravagant spending, just on nothing extra. Just normal "humble" life. Never even travel out before self. All my government knows is how to impoverish his citizens.
Ewwwww!!!!! cry cry cry

Nigeria, what is our crime.
