Represented by the state’s Deputy Governor, Dr Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna, Ganduje noted that the need for timely and correct payment of taxes by all taxpayers was a civic responsibility that should be encouraged at all levels.

“It is clear that all over the world, taxes, levies and charges constitute the sustainable sources of revenue to government for executing development projects in the areas of education, health, skills development, agriculture and infrastructure.

Where they are not paid, government has to resolve to legal options of filling cases against defaulters at the tax appeal tribunal for adjudication,” he said.
