NBA gives Lagos seven-day ultimatum to reverse Land Use Charge
The Nigerian Bar Association, Ikeja branch, has given the Lagos State Government a seven-day ultimatum to reverse its recently introduced hike on Land Use Charge.
The Chairman of the NBA branch, Mr. Adesina Ogunlana, disclosed in a statement on Wednesday that the association was set to embark on a mass protest tagged, “Hell Tax Must Go,” against the “Pharaoic tax regime.”
Ogunlana said the NBA was strongly opposed to the LUC, which it described as an “excessive and arbitrary tax regime” calculated at turning Lagos State into a “toxic environment and a living hell” for Lagosians.
He said the association would give Governor Akinwunmi Ambode till next Monday to retrace his steps on the LUC, failing which its members would hit the streets on Tuesday.
