Nigeria's tax-evading companies on the rise

The Federal Government of Nigeria has lamented the rise in corporate tax evasion in the country. More than 350,000 companies are not paying tax. The government is considering the idea of Electronic tax payment in the country. Dr Ngama stated that if all the companies are paying taxes, the government can use the tax proceeds to take care of infrastructural facilities such as electricity, good roads, water and many more.
