Country Director of Plant International, Hussain Abdul, has warned that more hard times await Nigerians as the recession could last longer than expected. He also solicited for heavy taxing of the rich to generate more revenue.
He said this at a workshop in Jos, Plateau State, for secretaries to governments of states governed by the party.
“Nobody should think that we can get out of this recession without taking hard decisions, those living luxury life need to be taxed heavily. How can someone who drives expensive car, on a 500 millimetre Nigerian road pay nothing? Just as the President once said, abnormal challenges need urgent solution, that is what is expected of every Nigerian”, he said.
The Director General of the Progressive Governors Forum, Salisu Lukman said that FG must take hard decisions must be taken if the country is to overcome the current economic challenges it is facing. He blamed the current situation on over-dependence on one source of revenue and solicited governments at all levels to seek alternate sources of revenue.
