VAT: Lagos Applies To Join Rivers As Respondents In FIRS Appeal by RZArecta(m): 2:54pm On Sep 10
The Lagos State Government on Friday applied to the Court of Appeal, Abuja Division to be joined as a co-respondent in the appeal filed by the Federal Inland Revenue Service challenging the judgment of the Federal High Court, Port Harcourt.

The PUNCH had earlier reported that the Federal High Court in Port Harcourt had declared that the FIRS has no power to collect VAT and Personal Income Tax in Rivers State.

The matter slated for the day’s activity in court on Friday was the application filed by FIRS seeking for stay of execution of the trial court’s judgment.

However, the Attorney General of Lagos State, Moyosore Onigbanjo (SAN) informed the court of their application for the Lagos State Government to be joined as a party in the appeal.

He argued that the application for joinder should be taken first before FIRS’ application for stay of execution.

However, the counsel for the FIRS, Mahmoud Magaji (SAN) argued that their application for stay of execution should take precedence over the application for joinder.


After listening to submissions from all the parties, the court stood down the matter for the ruling.

The Attorney General of Rivers State, Zacchaeus Adangor, and E. C. Nkala (SAN) for Rivers State.

Tijjani Gazali (SAN) represented the Attorney General of the Federation.

Also in court is the Rivers State Commissioner for Finance, Isaac Kamalu, and the Deputy Director & State Coordinator of Rivers, Edo, and Delta Zone, FIRS, Hamisu Mohammed Ibrahim.

Good one. VATs and Personal Income Tax should be for the respective states. Doesn't make sense for alcohol-destroying states in the North to expect share of the VAT proceeds from same alcohol businesses they are destroying.

The Supreme Court will eventually decide the matter legally. If the states win, there will be serious issues surrounding the administration of VAT that state governments need to come together to iron out. This is not one issue that can be sorted out quickly.

Well I support this move but it'll be sabotaged by some southern governors and expect prices of goods to skyrocket, loss of jobs, etc.

Good development.

If all the South South States join hands to support this. It will go a long way to help in developing their state.

You can't banned alcoholic drinks in your State and expect to collect revenue from the same business in another state.

Anyways, have you checked my signature today?
