Jimi Agbaje Is Owing Lagos Over 4 Years Land Use Charge, Yet He Wants To Be Lagos Governor- Fashola


Lagos State Governor, Babtunde Raji fashola has said the PDP’s
Governorship candidate in the state, Jimi Agbaje is a tax evader. Fashola
disclosed this while speaking at the 8th Annual Stakeholder Taxation Conference
in Ikeja on Wednesday.

Fashola said Agbaje’s pharmaceutical company has not paid
the state government four years Land Use Charge, LUC, tax and that such a
person is not credible to govern Lagos.
According to him, “LUC is ground rent and tenement rate as
they were consolidated. I know that you have to vote next month but look at
that candidate that would need to take over from me and be careful of who to
vote for. You will remember that in 2007, he (Agbaje) claimed that he was in
DPA and later crossed to PDP.

“You know that he manages a pharmacy called Jaykay Pharmacy,
located at 9, Randle Close, Apapa. His pharmacy has not paid land Use Charge
for 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012.

“They paid in 2013 and 2014 because they discovered that the
election would be holding in 2015. His pharmacy owes this state N1, 629,
064.62. Let us do that mathematics to see how many facilities that funds would
have provided in our hospitals and stationary in our schools. But this was the
same person who was complaining that the state government spent three percent
of its budget on education.
“Local Government is responsible for the management of the
primary schools and yet he has withheld their taxes. This is the man who wants
to be your next governor. And I will advice you that you avoid deception and
tax evader,” he stated.
