Report On Alleged Bread Tax Is Embarrassing-Kogi Govt

LAGOS NOVEMBER 16TH (NEWSRANGERS)-The Kogi state government has debunked reports that it has imposed a tax on bread.

A statement by the Deputy Governor of the state, Edward Onoja said “I am directed by His Excellency to give the lie to news of an alleged tax imposed on each loaf of bread to be sold in Kogi State. There is no iota of truth in the claims that we have approved such wickedness, because we have not and cannot.”

“We have just seen a purported consultancy agreement between one of our ministries and a private firm to impose an ill-conceived levy on bread in the state.

“For the records, neither the Governor nor the state executive council has imagined or proposed such a devilish tax regime, how much less imposing same on any food or essential commodity, not to mention bread which is a table staple and the basic lifeline of many a household” the statement read.

Onoja said the news was “in fact, an embarrassment to the state government.”
