Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo has called out the Lagos State Government and the governor of the state, Babajide Sanwo-Olu over an alleged N18 million tax request.
Recall that LIRS had requested the Yoruba actress to pay a total sum of N18,640,092.00 as personal income tax within seven days or face consequences of defaulting.
Iyabo Ojo via her Instagram page said she will not pay and is ready to be arrested.
She wrote: Governor Jide Sanwo-Olu please, how do you people come up with these outrageous personal income taxes you send on a daily basis?
“After paying for different types of taxes for one’s businesses, house and all, you still come up with all this huge amount and give me 7 days to pay up, lol. Last time, you people asked me to come to your office, I came, you asked me to explain and declare what I earn, which I did with my tax consultant, but noooooooooooooo you did not respond to my letter, because you want me to pay you an outrageous amount that I do not have, make i go theif ni? I ask again, “How do you people come up with such outrageous bills.”
“I don’t know how much you think I get paid. Hence, your team will come up with this conclusion.
”What have you people ever done for me as a government? NOTHING!!! I have single-handedly raised my kids and so many others, plus myself without a single penny from the government. Yet you feel so entitled to reaping over 100% from where you did not sow.
I have worked, and I’m still working tirelessly to survive in this country without the support of the government, but yet you just sit in your office and come up with different outrageous bills. Nothing is working right in this country but yet you feel the need to take from where you have not sworn.”
