Reps to invite Okonjo-Iweala, Nenadi Usman, others over alleged Tax Certificate forgery

Published

on

A committee in the House of Representatives  has resolved to invite Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Nenadi Usman, Steve Oronsaye and Jonah Otunla over alleged forged tax certificates. This was made known by Chairman House Committee on Public Procurement, Oluwole Oke during its recent findings of tax evasion by companies.

The
committee on Tuesday threatened to handover some companies involved in
the procurement of pre-shipment inspection contracts, who allegedly
forged tax certificates, to anti-graft agencies for prosecution.
The lawmakers also resolved to invite all permanent secretaries of the ministry of finance since 1999 till date.
“They
are to come and defend themselves and let us know the various roles
they played within the period of their stewardship. The essence of this
invitation is to enable the investigative hearing have a balance
position on all issues
,” Oluwole Oke, said.
Oke,
who warned against appointment of portfolio contractors by various
Ministries, Departments and Agencies, MDAs, decried the level of evasion
of taxes.
It’s alarming that a
company that collected a contract of $120 million only to pay N20,000 as
tax to Federal Government, to say the least this is annoying and those
are the things this investigative hearing is trying to right.
“We
have documents submitted by companies that are in total variance with
what FIRS, BPP, NSITF, PenCom and ITF gave us and you all know that our
children and sibblings benefit from ITF and if the right amount is not
paid how will they get trained.
“Henceforth we will not hesitate to handover such companies to anti-graft agencies,” he said.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
