The Governor of Rivers State, His Excellency Governor Nyesom Wike suspends all taxes across the State, including shop owners & hairdressing salon for the year 2020. Also suspended are all LG taxes and levies with the exception of tenement levy.
He reportedly made this move in a bid to cushion the impact of COVID-19 in the State. He made this statement today being the 30/7/2020
I think this is what other governors from different states across the country should do, because it will help to reduce expenses for the citizens in the states.
The Governor of Rivers State, Governor Nyeson Wike has done well, because this period a lot of Nigerians find it difficult to earn a living due to the covid-19 pandemic not too talk more of paying taxes and businesses have not been going well this period.
Wike said he is doing this to help and encourage people doing business in Rivers State because he understand fully well that businesses is not going the well it used to because of the pandemic in the world and collecting taxes from business owners in state is not encouraging.
