Kano’s Hisbah Seized, Destroyed 5,760 Cartons Of Beer, Yet Kano Gets Lion’s Share From VAT On Beer – Reno Omokri

Reno Omokri, a former presidential aide, has reacted to a report of Kano state’s Hisbah seizing and destroying 5,760 cartons of beer.

Omokri who claimed that Kano gets the lion’s share from Value Added Tax from beer added that it is hypocritical for the state government to keep getting allocations from items destroyed in their state but allowed in other states.

He further stated that “Nigeria’s current federalism is built on a foundation of injustice and that unjust foundation must be destroyed and replaced with an equitable one”.

Insisting that Nigeria’s current federalism is a “parasitic relationship”, Omokri urged Nigerians to “insist on the rights of states to collect VAT as the court and law provides.”

He said; “Yesterday, Kano’s Hisbah seized and destroyed 5,760 Cartons of Beer. Yet, Kano gets the lion’s share from VAT on beer. This is hypocrisy! I am solidly with Wike on this. Nigeria’s current federalism is built on a foundation of injustice and that unjust foundation must be destroyed and replaced with an equitable one.

And these are the very same people agitating against the Anti-Open Grazing Law that the Southern states want to pass. You reject alcohol, but want to impose killer herdsmen on us?

More than 60% of the VAT from Lagos is taken from Lagos and given to states like Kano and others. Nigeria’s current federalism is a parasitic relationship. We must all insist on the rights of states to collect VAT as the court and law provides. The monkey can no longer work for the baboon to eat.”
