Communications Minister Propose 10% Tax on Mobile Phone Use

Adebayo Shittu, the Minister of Communication, has proposed that the Nigerian government impose a 10 per cent tax on phone calls, text messages, data and more.

He says the tax would help enhance telecommunications service in the country.

The plan has been widely criticized and condemned by the masses.

 “We have a lot of deficiency in the provision of infrastructure in the telecommunication sector.

“And I believe that those who proposed the bill must have thought that government centrally relies on tax because without tax, government cannot operate,” he said.

The minister said the ministry was proposing a workshop to sensitise the public on the new bill.
