No Increase In Taxes For 2024 Budget Says Minister

The Minister of Finance and Coordinating Minister of the Economy, Mr Wale Edun has ruled out the possibility of increasing tax rates in the country.

Speaking during an interactive session with the House of Representatives Committee on Finance, he said his ministry will focus on revenue generation in the 2024 financial year, instead of increasing  taxes. 

The interactive session between the committee, the Minister, and government-owned enterprises (GOEs) was aimed at shoring up revenue generation above the projected N27.5 trillion for the 2024 budget.
