Cybersecurity levy: FG more interested in milking dying economy, says Peter Obi

Cybersecurity levy: FG more interested in milking dying economy, says Peter Obi

 

 

 

 

 

 

Global News Reports That The Presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, in the 2023 elections, says the federal government is more interested in milking a dying economy through the introduction of the cybersecurity levy.

 

 

 

 

Cybersecurity levy: FG more interested in milking dying economy, says Peter Obi

 

 

 

In a post on his X account on Wednesday, Obi said the policies implemented by the government not only drive the citizens into poverty but also diminish the country’s competitiveness in the economic environment.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

According to Obi, it is unreasonable to expect the struggling citizens of Nigeria to individually finance all government activities.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“The introduction of yet another tax, in the form of Cybersecurity Levy, on Nigerians who are already suffering severe economic distress is further proof that the government is more interested in milking a dying economy instead of nurturing it to recovery and growth,” Obi said.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“The imposition of a Cybersecurity Levy on bank transactions is particularly sad given that the tax is on the trading capital of businesses and not on their profit hence will further erode whatever is left of their remaining capital, after the impact of the Naira devaluation and high inflation rate.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“It is inconceivable to expect the suffering citizens of Nigeria to separately fund all government activities. Policies such as this impoverish the citizens and make the country’s economic environment less competitive.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“At a time when the government should be reducing taxes to curb inflation, the government is instead introducing new taxes. And when did the office of the NSA become a revenue-collecting center?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“And why should that purely national security office receive returns on a specific tax as stated in the new cybersecurity law?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On May 6, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) directed banks and other financial institutions to implement a 0.5 percent cybersecurity levy on electronic transfers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

CBN said the policy would take effect in two weeks and charges would be described as a ‘Cybersecurity Levy’.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The apex bank said the charges would be remitted to the national cyber security fund, administered by the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA).

The foundation, led by it’s Chairman Amb Ibrahim Dahiru Danfulani Sadaukin Garkuwan Keffi and Betara of Biu, expressed deep concern over the discriminatory practices of the supermarket, which only allows Chinese citizens to enter and purchase goods while barring Nigerians from doing the same.

 

 

 

 

 

TY BURATAI HUMANITY CARE FOUNDATION CALLS FOR EXPULSION OF A CHINESE FAMILY OWNERS OF A SUPERMARKET THAT SEGREGATES NIGERIANS 

 

 

 

 

The Grand Patron of the Foundation, His Excellency Ambassador Lt Gen Tukur Yusufu Buratai (Rtd) CFR, former Chief of Army Staff, condemned the discriminatory actions of the supermarket owners, likening it to racism. He emphasized that no foreign citizen should be denied his rights in Nigeria as long as he or she abides by the country’s laws. Gen Buratai questioned the audacity of foreigners dictating terms to bona-fide citizens on how to live or stay in their own country.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gen Buratai further criticized the discriminatory policies of the supermarket owners, stating that there is no valid reason for a company in Nigeria to refuse to sell to Nigerians. He labeled the actions of the Chinese family-owned establishment as a clear case of racism and called for decisive action by the federal government against any individuals, foreign or Nigerian, who flout the rules and regulations of the nation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The TY Buratai Humanity Care Foundation’s stance on the issue serves as a strong message against segregation and open hatred towards Nigerians. The foundation urges the government to address such discriminatory practices swiftly and firmly to uphold the rights and dignity of all citizens in Nigeria and even abroad.
