Do You Love it When You Pay Tax on Every 3 Minutes Calls You Make?… CBN Gov Propose a Tax Bill

Will you love it if you pay tax after every 3 minutes calls
you the caller initiated? Well, I’m guessing your answers have question marks
but for CBN governor Godwin Emefiele, it is an alternative source of revenue
for the Government.

In his words, “There are several ways we can raise
additional revenue to finance the increased expenditure that is needed to
engender fast and sustainable growth in the economy,” Emefiele said.

“I think we can consider introducing a negligible telecom surcharge to be entirely
borne by the initiator of a call. In order to protect the poor and vulnerable
among us, we could structure it to only take effect after the third minute of

“Some analyses have indicated that the government could earn about N100 billion
per annum from this alone. Obviously this surcharge will mainly be borne by
middle and upper class people since I do not know many poor people who make
calls for more than 3 minutes!”

As the initiator of
a call, how will you feel if you are taxed on every 3minutes calls and above
you make?
