Tax Office Invites Peter Obi

Former governor of Anambra state, Peter Obi, was invited by the Chief Tax Officer in Onitsha to present evidence that he has paid his tax for six years.

Peter Obi decided to honour the invitation himself. He came along with his aide and showed the Chief Tax Officer, Mrs Nwakpudolu Juliet, not his six years tax clearance certificate, but his twenty years tax clearance certificate showing that he has paid tax of N204million.

Mr. Peter Obi said it is important that citizens pay their taxes and that he was impressed with the way the chief tax officer invited him. Impressive. Very impressive. This is how it should be done:

“When people say you don’t have something, you present it, not to hire twenty SANs to defend you, or to keep quiet, or to blame someone else for your crimes.” If it were some people, they would have started alleging that some people want to witch-hunt them by demanding their tax certificate. Not Peter Obi. To him, tax was something that ought to be paid.
