President Muhammadu Buhari has pledged that the Federal Government will look into the issue of illegal tax collections to encourage more private sector businesses to thrive in the country.
The president made the pledge today when he received the leadership of the Amalgamated Union of Foodstuff and Cattle Dealers Association of Nigeria. President Buhari told the delegation that his administration has genuine intentions to eliminate illegal taxes in the country, despite the fact that ‘‘old habits die hard.’’
The President described the association as very important and strategic to the nation’s economy, saying the real wealth of this country lies in agriculture and livestock rearing. He, therefore, pledged the administration’s continuous assistance to the sector.
Responding, the General Secretary of the Union, Alhaji Ahmed Alaramma, said that the association will work for the re-election of President Buhari because the administration has taken the country back to the path of sustainable growth.
