Elumelu advocates better tax reforms

Elumelu, the Chairman, Heirs Holdings and Founder of Tony Elumelu Foundation, has called for far reaching Tax reforms and for the National Assembly to urgently pass the Executive Tax bill into law.

Elumelu made this statement as he delivered the keynote address at the 21st Annual Tax Conference of the Chartered Institute of Taxation of Nigeria (CITN), titled, “National Development: Unlocking the Potentials of Taxation”.

Speaking on the challenges that stifle small businesses, Elumelu quoted a young entrepreneur beneficiary of the Tony Elumelu Foundation, “The average business owner in Nigeria is a local government authority on his own because he caters for his own electricity with generators, he builds his own borehole, handles his own waste disposal, and the government can make his life easier by creating favourable tax policies that support SMEs.”
