Omotola calls out PHCN, Lagos state government over taxes

In a series of tweets this afternoon, actress Omotola Jalade Ekeinde, berated the services of PHCN in the Ikeja area of Lagos. She also took a swipe at the Lagos state government over the new Tax law where everyone including domestic staff are to pay taxes. She feels the government doesn't do enough to demand taxes. See more of her tweets after the cut...

PHCN is indeed d biggest fraud in Nigeria tday, if u dont bring out ur hard earned money to pay for dis heavy bills u'll not understand, last month i paid 19000 naira and never saw light . Wat dey do is just flash d light at d end of everymonth so dey can com disconect ppl.dis country isnt getting better and nobody is doing nothing. Untill dey push pple to start revolting d govt like it happened in Egypt . #dontpushme#

The suffering is now too much. Haba! No light, no fuel,no water, no money...things have gone from bad to worse. I queued for many hours yesterday to buy fuel at 200 naira per litre. Got home no light. Petrol attendants dont sell in kegs anymore. For d past 3 weeks no light... No water. Using pure water bags to shower. Its frustrating .

Nigerians put with up all kind of rubbish, moaning will not change anything in the country. A country where a man is beaten to death for pocket picking, and politicians use state funds to celebrate their children's wedding. If people decide not to pay bills for electricity not supplied, they will go burst. Direct action is urgently needed to stop the drastic slide into the abyss. Democracy will not solve the country's problem. What we need is a benevolent dictator that will tackle the mountain of problem head on. We don't need a Presidential system, it's waste of money, and it encourages corruption.

God bless you omotola. I pay 22k for light bill. 2 ac and one fridge that's all!! And we barely have light for up to 8hours In 24 hours. What rubbish! What sort of govt is this! Wicked perverse leaders. Sound of generator in this house day and night is about to make me lose my damn mind!! Paying 22k per month for electricity you don't see yet queuing 4 h to buy fuel at 160 naira per litre in other words 30k plus to fuel gen a month. Civil servants collecting 50k a month how on earth do they feed and pay bills. What a wicked nation. God's judgement is coming soon on yall! Wicked govt!!! Wicked leaders!!!

Omotola, you just earned my respect for this post, means alot when pple post stuff about real issues than tons of nothingness on social media. Best part is your noting how foreign laws want to be implemented without will or intelligence to provide necessary stuff. #Dumb

The presidency talking about transparency every fking day yet syphoning funds and taking food out of the poor man's mouth. In my entire existence on the Nigerian soil I have never witnessed such a perverse evil govt!! No fuel,no electricity yet ridiculous bills,poor salary,etc. Let us revolt!

In develop countries, government tax you after providing what you need, in Nigeria, you pay tax when nothing will ever be provided, they are only interested in gathering money they want to loot‎

Vickynita Peters said...

Nigerians are too docile, diz politicians have families back at home and dey need us. A revolution will set things right but we already made ourselves slaves and must demand our liberty. We deserve better.

Godwin said...

No be small my sister. Everything in this country is getting high, why salary is dormant. We can't fight them what we need is God's intervention. They promised us change instead of them to fulfil their promise. they start giving us excuses.

We are not ready yet, when we already, we will occupy all these offices and send them packing . I see sandhurst of revolution raging their part to raze this state. Ambode is just a fool . What amenities do you give to people? You will tax the income of those living in Makoko too? Are you senseless and heartless? Teetotallers have become drunks just to invoke amnesia on their despair.

All nigerian youths think about is gossip and social media status. Ppl who have the capacity to fight our battles are busy taking selfies and pictures up and down. No one has ever hit the streets in peaceful protests against phcn, no work, notin, everyone stays home then we will see who will generate money for the govt or phcn. But all we do is complain,smile,still pay the phcn,come back to darkness and take selfies

Anonymous said...

Let us revolt oooooo,especially against phcn. Something has to be done. Is it true we suppy electricity to Cotonou? Their light doesn't blink over there,I mean these ppl are just taking us for us for a ride. They are pushing us n we r very close to d wall,we will fight back!

Paid vs. payed

Paid is the standard past tense and participle of pay. Payed was historically used for the nautical senses of pay and in the phrasal verb pay out where what’s payed out is rope. The form still appears occasionally, but paid now prevails even in payed‘s traditional uses.
