The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has advised the Federal Government to reverse its decision to increase the Value Added Tax (VAT) from 5 per cent to 7.2 per cent. The party in a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan on Thursday in Abuja said that the PDP rejected the decision.
Ologbondiyan said that Nigerians could not bear such a burden under the prevailing economic situation. For now, before there can be an increase in VAT, the National Assembly has to approve it. Fingers crossed.
