Taking another step to drive positive change, for Nigeria’s socio-economic reforms and growth, the Nigerian Leadership Initiative [NLI], is set to present the Volume 2 of its White Papers series.
According to the CEO of NLI, Yinka Oyinlola, ”The publication of Volume 2 is NLI’s contribution to a long-term improvement to the Nigerian tax system. Over the last several decades, recommendations were proffered and great strides have been made at reforming Nigerian tax legislation and administration. Considerable improvements, however, still subsist in areas ranging from fair taxation to usage of taxes to transform the economy. Additionally, the social dimensions and transformative effects of taxes are yet to be undertaken”
The publication contains 12 wide-ranging articles written by accomplished tax experts and practitioners. Amongst the wirters are: Ken Igbokwe (Senior Partner at PwC Nigeria); Ifueko M. Omoigui Okauru (former Executive Chairman of the Federal Inland Revenue Service, FIRS); Taiwo Oyedele (Partner and Head of Tax and Corporate Advisory, PwC Nigeria); M.L. Abubakar (Secretary, Joint Tax Board); and Etim Uso (an IT Tax Systems Expert).
The public presentation held at the Yar’Adua Centre, on Friday, June 28, 2013.
