Emulate Revolutionary Digital Tax System For Transporters And Traders In Kwara

By Comrade Tolorunleke Buhari

It is no longer a news but a conspicuous fact that taxpayers in Kwara State are reluctant in the payment of their tax. The reason is not far fetch, it is as a result of the fact that taxpayers cannot really lay hands on what they benefit from the tax they pay.

However, there are myriads of systems that if put in place, not only will taxpayers be motivated to willingly pay their tax, misappropriation in the areas of road tax will also reduce to the bearest minimal if not totally eradicated.

The Coordinator, Awake Youth Movement, Kwara State Chapter, Comrade Tolorunleke Buhari encourages Kwara State government in collaboration with Kwara State Internal Revenue Service to emulate revolutionary digital tax system for transporters and traders launched by Anambra, Abia State and other advanced countries. This system is designed to curb fraud and augment revenue in the state.

 This system incorporates a free medical insurance scheme for all commercial vehicle operators and bike riders, enabling us to fuel entrepreneurial growth and progress within the state. We envisage this digital platform to not only simplify tax compliance, but also unlock substantial revenue for developmental projects, thereby strengthening our state's economy. 

It will offer easy payment options for both transporters and traders, and promotes transparency, reflecting our steadfast commitment to facilitating business operations in Kwara State. 

If this new digital tax system is formulated and implemented, it will add more feathers to the achievements of our dear indefatigable governor, His Excellency, Abdulraman Abdulrazaq led administration.
