PDP Urges Senate Not To Pass VAT Increase Bill
The Peoples Democratic Party has urged the Senate to assert its independence by refusing to pass the Value Added Tax increase bill.
The opposition party, through its publicity secretary, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan described the VAT increase bill as toxic and insensitive.

Mr. Kola added that the bill was hurriedly passed through second reading in the Senate even when the details of the bill were not made available to the lawmakers. 

He added that the alleged failure to avail the details of the bill to the lawmakers confirmed its toxicity to the polity, PunchNG reported.

The PDP spokesperson while describing the bill as anti-people, reminded the senate that Nigerians have rejected the bill due to its attendant adverse economic effect on them.

He said, “Such planned increase in VAT is insensitive, suppressive and if anything, will further impoverish Nigerians and worsen the prevailing agonising economic situation in the country.

The National Assembly, as the true representatives of the people at the federal level, should, therefore, protect Nigerians by ensuring that such an anti-people policy does not receive a final legislative stamp.
