If you over tax them they will take it on the workers under them by
1: slashing their salaries
2: laying off their minor staffs
3: inflating the price of their commodities.
So govt, choose which one you want to go with. Is it not the best to tell Nigerians the truth about the stolen wealth bn stashed in somewhere by ds criminal politicians who hide under the umbrella of the ruling parties both in Federal, state & LG

RedPanthar:Civil Servant Customs Officer turned business man Abubakar Atiku? He was my late Father’s boy in the 80’s at Murtala International Airport Ikeja, but as they say, the young shall grow. He may have small money today, but he is forever a boy to some.

None of these is good like having a youth with brain. Or better still a coup by a good young Military guy.
Someone who could cut down the salaries of the thieves in the honorable houses. Jail those that are guilty of stealing and bring about good policies that can lift the economy.

No. Not good advice. And it does not make any sense. Policies like these never work in a corrupt countries like Nigeria. The bureaucratic ineptitude and corruption of Nigerians will be it's down fall.

Luxury tax ke.
Them never agree to pay normal tax finish
A population of less the 5 percent rich cannot subsidize for more than 60 percent poor. It's not sustainable.
We have to think smart. Engage this youth. Population is a resource. If we want to go socialism in a world of prime capitalism it won't work.
Rather creat a zero home portal for other nations. Tax free with cheap labour incentives.
We don't have any choice. We have to summit ourselves to be use by wealthy nation's. That's the only way we can train ourselves and make money legitimately while earning trust and respect. China is doing it. America is shipping job there because of low wages.
We need to generate force. With this kind of population we just need the be working anyway. All the indicators or stats will just keep firing. Their is nothing to measure because we not even active.

Anything to turn the table to favour the poor is okay by me. Nigeria is so rich that we should by now have wiped away extreme poverty. I have always advocated the redistribution of wealth, tax heavily the rich and pay the poor whose account balances read below 20,000 naira. The churches are not excluded in this tax and same with the mosques and politicians. Then, I advocate the 75% mandatory quota for recruitment of Nigerians in every private organization. Also use the taxes from the super rich to pay the police and other paramilitary agencies better salaries and allowances to have them combat crime. Build industries from plastic to agro to chemical allied industries and also solid mineral dependent industries.

Will they tax the stolen money stashed away in foreign banks also?
|Re: Tax Super Rich To Save The Poor — Atiku Tells President Buhari by Frankcallys(m): 5:31pm On Nov 22|
What I mean by giving back to the poor is.. By taxing the super rich to provide basic amenities that will help the poor to improve their lives. Like using the taxpayers money for free health care services for them, free education for the poor masses, good roads to the villages to help the poor especially the farmers.
Increasing the minimum wage to N100, 000. With that on board, even the intellectually poor like you tagged them will be forced to work and earn enough money for a better living.
I reside here in South Africa, government hospitals are free, no matter the kind of sickness or surgery you need, it's free of charge. There are RDP houses built for the poor, accident insurance funds for anyone involved in an accident, unemployment fund for those who lost their jobs/not working. Grants for the elderly, child grants for kids whose parents are not working.
All of the above comes from the said tax we are talking about. Now let me ask you, if we have all that, won't the poor enjoy the country just like the rich?

Asifiwe:Complain, complain, complain. That is what we always do. Many nigerians complain because they are victims of the system, not because they care about the country. What happens when they suddenly have millions in their bank account, and living lavishly in mansions, their children are schooling in London and having holidays at Monaco? You won't hear them complain again.
Where do you think bad leaders come from? They come from our society. In Nigeria people mistake craftiness for intelligence - oversense . Look around you in Nigerian society, it's all chaos, we love to break simple rules to achieve selfish goals. We have a way of life that promotes corruption, sometimes we call it "hustling" - corrupt politicians are hustling too.
Revolution comes from a change of mindset, not by fighting - another criminal will emerge from the woodworks later on, and the viscous cycle of corruption continues. How many Nigerians are ready to change their bad habits for the betterment of the nation?
Nation building is a down-up movement, if the everyday things of the common society are messed up, the government will be messed up too because they will repeat what we do in a large scale.

Problem is that there aren't even enough super rich to tax.
|Re: Tax Super Rich To Save The Poor — Atiku Tells President Buhari by banmee(m): 5:43pm On Nov 22|
You will think i am joking but the honest truth is to burn it all down and start over. Nigeria's problem is more psychological than any other issue. Nigerians have been immersed in it from birth so they don't know how bad it is. Believe it or not, Ghana was at a cross roads at one point. Their corruption was as bad as today's Nigeria. You know who saved them? Jerry Rawlings. People really do not give him credit for what he did for Ghana. He assembled all the OBJs, the Buharis, the Atikus of his time and executed all of them and they started over. Even if that is done in Nigeria today it won't change anything. An average 15 year old in Nigeria is a "sharp guy". The concept of "chop I chop" has seeped into the mentality of Nigerians and there is no way you can rid that culture out of a person. That person needs to die. Period. A transactional country can never succeed and Nigeria's society is transactional. We are facing the same thing now in the U.S. We elected a transactional president in Donald Trump and he almost wrecked democracy. Thank the heavens he didn't succeed. Americans elected a president who had the mentality of a Nigerian.

WIll they pay does he himself pay tax
|Re: Tax Super Rich To Save The Poor — Atiku Tells President Buhari by Akamariner: 5:48pm On Nov 22|
How i wish that was what atiku meant.
But actually it isn't, he is instead trying to sound like he cares for the poor, whereas he didn't.
He is actually doing this for his own political ambition.
And until we learn to be sane as a nation, those things you mention above will be far from being achieved, cause even if the money where realised, it mostly wouldn't be used for the intended purpose.

The former VP seems to be contesting for 2023 from Dubai.
Confirmed: Ruto's Trip to Dubai in Photos
By DENIS MWANGI on 20 November 2020 - 7:49 pm
Kenyans.co.ke can now reveal Deputy President William Ruto’s whereabouts after much speculation on social media.
The online platforms were rife with rumours that DP Ruto had traveled out of the country after a meeting with President Uhuru Kenyatta on Wednesday, November 18.
A close source to the county’s second in command disclosed that Ruto met with former Nigeria Vice President Atiku Abubakar in Dubai, UAE, on Friday, November 20.
Among those who accompanied the deputy president was former Mombasa Senator Hassan Omar.
The photo raised confusion as to whether the DP was in Nigeria while online political pundits claimed he was in Dubai.
Kenyans.co.ke can authoritatively report that the meeting took place in Dubai where the Nigerian politician has been living for many years.
Ruto is very active in public engagements and his whereabouts are likely to concern his followers and critics alike.
Kenyans were particularly interested in how the Deputy President would celebrate his wife Rachel's birthday which falls on November 20.
Mama Rachel was also not seen in the photos that emerged of Ruto in Dubai.
By the time of publishing, the DP had not posted a message to his spouse as he was fond of doing in previous years.
“Happy Birthday my lovely wife, best friend, confidant and companion, Mama Rachel. You are the greatest gift of my life, my peerless supporter and a distinguished mother to our lovely children. I am proud of you,” Ruto posted in 2019.
Coincidentally, the deputy president’s birthday falls exactly 31 days after his wife’s on December 21.

Our Politicians talk for the poor citizens before they get to power, but end up favoring the riches when they get there.

HigherEd:Reducing taxes of key sectors of the economy can help the poor to cushion the effect from high inflation.
Reduction of taxes doesn't always means monetary taxes, it can be inform of incentives in certain areas of the key sector of the economy.
In the Agriculture sector : the FG can cut prices or reduce the cost for fertilizer, seedling, etc which will encourage more people into Agriculture(there by diversifying the economy) there by reducing the high cost of the local food production , which in turn reduce or make prices of commodities affordable virtually for everyone. Accessing fertilizers, seedling or inputs, the taxes on those is the same whether rich or poor, also it will create employment, reduce unsustainable government spending on creating empowerment programs.
Income : FG can reduce income tax for people who earns at a certain amount of income which does not place them on the rich bracket, which will enable people afford commodity in the market. Which will encourage more people to save and venture into business which can create employment for the youths in the country.
Electricity : government can cut the taxes of high electricity charges or bills, for poor farmers or businesses who are small scale or start-up to enable them grow to commercial and tax them to get revenue for development of the country.
Tax can save the poor if it is well structured.

This will be an injustice to the super rich.
If anyone wants to help anyone, they should be allowed to do it without compulsion.
For me, my opinion remains the same.
We are spending too much to finance useless political institutions such as the National Assembly.
Lawmakers should be paid wages, not salaries. They should only receive money when there are plenaries.
They should be allowed to work on other jobs. Full time lawmaking is too expensive, and does not encourage lawmakers to give their best.
Also, political office holders should cut down on the cost of governance. Keeping too many personnel on their payroll is not necessary at all. Sacrifices should include multitasking employees, rather than spreading out responsibilities to many employees.
If a person can do three jobs, give it to him to save cost of employing 2 more persons.

It's easier said than.......
They all seems to have theory on how to boost economy but the moment the mantle is giving to them the theory will evaporate.
|Re: Tax Super Rich To Save The Poor — Atiku Tells President Buhari by Nobody: 6:27pm On Nov 22|
Name one super-rich Nigeria operating from within her shores who did not get rich from racketeering and jobbery...it's not a question of more tax, if the government cut down on wasteful spending and contract-inflation alone there would be enough money to develop the sectors that actually matter i.e. agric and manufacturing
But that would mean a reduction in the huge amounts of cash available for them to steal so the bastards won't do it...every single one of these ministers and govt functionaries is elbows-deep in some from of white collar fraud or the other because in Nigeria fraud is a way of life
God forbid super-greedy Atiku should get to Aso Rock, all these platitudes he mouths on twitter would be thrown out the window so fast when he starts his own round of stealing and nepotism...hypocrite

Can you please list at least 10 luxury items that can be taxed and the resultant revenue adequate enough to fund a monthly payment of N5k to every account holder.
