A well known Kaduna South Senatorial hopeful, Mr Rijo Shekari took to his Facebook page to express his thoughts about Senate introducing a tax on GSM and Cabel TV subscription. He wrote;
“I hear the Senate is introducing a tax on GSM and Cable TV subscribers. 9% on calls and data when in this day and age internet should be free in public places. Who has bewitched us? That a bill has even passed the first reading. SMH!
When the private sector is pushing for financial inclusion to accommodate those in the rural areas, you now want to tax them. These guys never think of producing anything from scratch, or drive policies that would better the lives of the common man. All they think of is ways to milk productive folks to finance their unproductive lifestyles. Nansense!”
