Reverse Land Use Charge Within 7 Days, Lawyers Tell Ambode
Ambode’s new land use charge in Lagos is causing serious ripples.
Now, lawyers in Ikeja under the aegis of Nigeria Bar Association are threatening a showdown with the statement government.
The lawyers have given the government a seven-day ultimatum to reverse the recent hike in Land Use Charge, LUC.
The Chairman, NBA Ikeja Branch, Adesina Ogunlana, said in a statement on Wednesday that the association is set to embark on a mass protest tagged: ‘Hell Tax Must Go’ against the new tax regime.
Ogunlana said the NBA is 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.
According to him, the protest will be the association’s “first phase of critical and constructive response to the decidedly insensitive, provocative, arbitrary and parochial tax agenda programme against the Ambode administration.”
