Governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi has said the level of tax evasion in Nigeria is scandalous.
The governor said this when he made an appearance on National Television on Wednesday.
He made the comments just hours after he officially declared his intentions to run for president.
Fayemi lamented that the rich hardly pay taxes and if he is elected, he will ensure that the rich pay more taxes.
Meanwhile, former Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, also shared the same sentiments.
Addressing members of the press on Wednesday in Abuja, after he declared his intention to run for the seat of the President, Oshiomhole said he will appropriately tax the rich to provide amenities for the poor.
