Governance’ll be difficult without taxes – Aregbesola

Governor Rauf Aregbesola

Osun state governor, Mr. Rauf Aregbesola, on Wednesday, said the need for the state to be less dependent on its rather insufficient monthly allocation from the federation account, had made it important for people to pay tax.
Besides, the governor noted that the nation had reached a stage where nothing works without taxes as the allocation to the state remained insufficient to cater for the numerous government obligations.
He said the development that Osun State had seen in the last five years of his administration could only be sustained, even in the face of the dwindling resources from the federation account, if people support government by paying taxes.
The governor stated this while giving his remarks at the 1437 Hijrah, the New Year Calendar celebration of Muslims held at Osogbo Government Technical College.
He said that his administration had been able to pilot the affairs of Osun as expected, adding that the state cannot remain over-dependent on federal allocation as there was an urgent need to be independent as an autonomous state.
“Payment of tax is a civic responsibility of all adults. We enjoin our people to see reasons in our agitation as we promise that their tax will continue to work for them,” Aregbesola said.
Speaking further, Aregbesola, who was represented by his Chief of Staff, Alhaji Isiaka Gboyega Oyetola, said Hijrah the celebration was very significant to Muslims and that any serious government conscious of good governance, would see a need for the promotion of neutrality and balance among all the existing religions.
Earlier, the Mufasir of Osogboland, Alhaji Maru’f Ishola, charged Nigerians to complement government efforts through the prompt payment of tax.
The Islamic scholar described regular tax payment as the only panacea that can cushion the current economic mess, which, according to him, has impeded the growth and development of the nation.
