Pay your tax, Anglican bishop tells members

From Nigeria-

The Archbishop of the Ecclesiastical Province of Lagos and Dean, Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), the Most Reverend Ephraim Ademowo, has urged members to support the state government by paying their taxes regularly.

He made this call during the 31st synod of the diocese, held at Our Saviour’s Church, Tafawa Balewa Square, on Tuesday.

“By paying our taxes, I believe it will go a long way in assisting the government in implementing its projects successfully. The present administration derives much of its revenue from taxes and it is important that we contribute our quota to move the state forward.”

The cleric, however, called on other state governments in the country to emulate Lagos State, especially in the area of revenue generation, warning them not to depend on the Federal Government to develop its domains.

“Let us tell our respective state governors to visit Lagos and emulate the performance of Governor Babatunde Fashola,” he said.

In his remark, Fashola called on the Federal Government to review the allocation of its resources in a way that people could directly benefit from it.
