She was joined at the press conference by the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed; and the Minister of State, Aviation, Hadi Sirika.


  1. If only the money will be spent for a better Nigeria

  2. They shouldn't tax us to death. The government should cut down ⬇ its expenses and free Nigerians. Na only us waka come?

  3. Increasing VAT with no good road, no good drinking water,no power supply, no infrastructure development. This country is just a mess

  4. Why only relate with the higher taxes in UK
    standard of living there is uncomparable with naija own

  5. This federal government just want people to be miserable

  6. Luxury items are not for the poor hence it wouldn't affect them directly

  7. Why not also emulate the all round better living conditions there by providing same to Nigerians before increasing taxes?
