As Nigerians die slowly from ‘regulated’ productsHe categorically stated that his state won’t pursue VAT collection as agreed by his colleagues from the South West at Thursday’s meeting in Enugu. The governor was represented by his deputy, Kelechi Igwe, at the meeting.

Umahi said, “When they (southern governors) say that this VAT collection is part of true restructuring, I said I never believe in total restructuring; I believe in administrative restructuring.”“In any gathering, the minority will have their say and the majority will have their way. For example, there was an issue that came up, I am not sure it’s clear to some of our colleagues on the issue of VAT but it is very clear to me. headtopics.com

“We (Ebonyi) took a stand as a state with our leaders on the issue of the VAT war and so my deputy carried it on to say that this is what my governor is saying and this is what the state is saying and he went ahead to explain with some other deputies that represented their governors.

“But, together, they were in the minority and it didn’t stop the majority from coming up with their communiqué. When it comes to implementation and voicing out, I will continue to say this is where I stand. If it is a choice, I will choose what would benefit my state,” he added.

According to him, many states in the country wouldn’t make it if the states take over the VAT collection from the federal government, whilst appealing to southern governors to be their ‘brother’s keeper’.He said, “Eat and have so much surplus and then some other states don’t have much to eat. We have to be our brothers’ keepers; we have to see how we can grow the economies of the weakest states.

“There is no way in a relationship that you will get 100 per cent of what you put in; it doesn’t work that way. I have said that my state would not be viable and I will continue to say that more than 30 other states would not be viable; we should not break the states. headtopics.com

Lazy Governor only interested in federal allocation, you can not create meaningful something out of the states. I bet if he’s still in the PDP the opposite will be his response. Stop spoiling the good name you made as Governor in Ebonyi just because you want to be president. The so-called majority perching and leeching on the so called minority is not a sustainable strategy 🤗

If you collect vat to use on your state na bad things or are you just scared so your pay master won't change their mind on your presidential ambition. A Slave This man is a born-saboteur...
