A Nasarawa State-based business man, Joseph Nweze, has decried the high rate of taxes charged by both the Federal Inland Revenue Services, Nasarawa State Interval Revenue Board as well as the local government authorities.
Nweze who is the Chief Executive Officer of ManJoe Investment, stated this in an interview with our Correspondent in Lafia.
He, therefore, appealed to the necessary authorities to review downward all forms of taxes for the purposes of accommodating smaller businesses to enable them contribute to the economic development of the country.
He, however, commended the efforts of the Governor Abdullahi Sule-led administration which, according to him, is focused on industrialising the state.
He called on the governor to remain steadfast and ensure that electricity supply is improved in the state so as to give life to businesses operating in the state.
According to the Nweze, as a private financial institution, his firm is open to any genuine business owner and is also willing to finance any genuine business, serve as guarantor in any bank within 24hours.
