Happening Now: Lawyers Protest Land Use Charge (PHOTOS)
Members of the Nigerian Bar Association, Ikeja branch are currently staging a protest at Ikeja, Lagos.
The mass protest tagged: ‘Hell Tax Must Go’ is coming on the heels of the new tax regime.
The group are protesting the increment in the Lagos land use charge which will now see landlords in the state pay 400% more than they are currently paying for land use charge.
Last week, the NBA Ikeja chairman, Adesina Ogunlana said the group was strongly opposed to the LUC, which he described as an “excessive and arbitrary tax regime” calculated at turning Lagos State into a “toxic environment and a living hell” for the residents.
The group had thus given the government a seven-day ultimatum to reverse the recent hike.
