Buhari will not impose harsh tax regime on Nigerians- APC

The APC Presidential Campaign
Organization, APCPCO, has assured that it
will not impose any harsh tax regime on
Nigerians but will rather employ existing
tax policies of government to fund its
people-oriented programmes.
In a press statement by Garba Shehu,
Director of Media and Publicity of the APC
Presidential Campaign Organization, the
party said that under the present
administration of President Jonathan, the
Nigerian people and the business
community are reeling under multiple,
discriminatory and harsh tax regime.
“The prevailing harsh tax regime under
the present PDP government has caused
untold hardship on the population while
manufacturing industries in the country
are threatening to shut down their
operations because of the high electricity
tariff imposed on them when they depend
largely on generating sets to power their
factories as reported by The Guardian of
Thursday, 26 February 2015.
administration will make life more
bearable and manageable for both the
citizens and the business sector by
entrenching discipline in Public
Administration across all sectors of
governance. Second, the party will plug all
loopholes through which public funds are
being lost. When these loopholes and
accompanying wastages are plugged and
corruption reduced to a minimum or
totally stamped out as promised by our
presidential candidate, General Buhari,
the government will have reasonable
quantum of funds for social investments
programmes in education, health, and
safety nets such as free school meals for
children, emergency public works for
unemployed youth and pensions for the
elderly. Third, an APC government will
seek to ensure that all existing laws and
policies on taxation will be implemented
judiciously while tax authorities and
administrators will be encouraged to do
their work with the utmost transparency.
“The PDP is obviously scared of the
credible alternative which the APC
represents and will go to any length to lie
to Nigerians on any issue including those
on which the APC has not expressed a
position. The majority of Nigerians are
looking forward eagerly to the advent of
an APC administration as a panacea to the
deceit and fraud that has characterized
the administration of the PDP in the last
16 years.
“In view of the mood of the nation and the
glaring cases of stealing, corruption, fraud
and looting that is the character of the
present administration, we advise the PDP
spokesperson to save his breath and make
the burden of change and power transfer
lighter by advising his party and their
government functionaries to start
preparing hand-over notes.”
