Hello Lagosians, here comes merriment tax

Call it crazy but i like to call it innovative. Dem say, aint no party like a Lagos party and Lagosians are really living up to expectations by spending up to N1billion every month.

Wow! Now that's a whole lot of money and that's why the state government is considering the introduction of merriment/party tax.

Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Mr. Ademorin Kuye said made this known yesterday. He said:  

“Over N1billion is spent monthly in Lagos state on entertainment and parties, we have the records to confirm this and these people, how many of them pay tax? The money goes into drinks, wine, food, aso-ebi and all of that and when they spend all of this money; they do not want to pay anything to the government”
"This justified the reason why local Governments demand that anyone organising events in the state must pay the Merriment Tax.”
 “There is merriment tax in that constitution, its part of the rate Local Governments can collect. We have not fully utilised the benefit of the entertainment industry in this state”.
Like seriously merriment tax in 9ja? Oh no you got to be kidding and lets just say Fashola is creating another means for "Agberos" and "Thugs" to make a living and of course ruin people's parties.
