Abia NLC Lament Over-taxation

Published

on

Abia State Council of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has cried out against what it called “over taxation” by the Abia State Government, saying that the government’s new tax policy would further impoverish the workers.

The State Chairman of NLC, Comrade Uchenna Obigwe said that even allowances are being taxed. To make matters worse, the Board of Internal Revenue of the State embarked on the new tax regime without any sensitization for the workers to prepare them for the new tax.

According to Obigwe, to calm the agitated workers on the issue, NLC and TUC have set up a 9-member committee to look into the issue and advise the unions accordingly.

He said that the outcome of the committee which has 30 days to complete its assignment would determine the next line of action for the workers.
