The Governorship Candidate, Young Progressives Party, YPP, Ondo State October 10, 2020 election, Don Dotun Ojon, has raised an alarm that the government of APC led by Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu will continue to put tax burden on the people of the state.
In a Press Statement made available to SUNSHINETRUTH, Ojon lamented that the APC has no good to offer the people than to over tax them if Akeredolu is reelected.
According to the YPP governorship Hopeful, Ondo State people must be wise enough to give a red card to the Akeredolu’s government which agenda is to make life unpleasant through different types of tax collection.

APC CAMPAIGN FLAGOFF : ONDO SHOULD BRACE UP FOR MORE TAXES.
The All Progressives Congress in Ondo State has once again proved itself as a party without a genuine agenda for deliberate growth in the State, other than to tax, tax and tax.
This is further displayed at the programmes marking the flag off of their Candidate’s campaign in Ondo State as virtually all discussions centered around how to get people to pay more taxes and make more money for the government.
Like a proper swindler, the Akeredolu’s government has an ‘MMM’ mindset – and the only thing that matters to it is to get more money; despite the fact that the government has made life already miserable for the people.
For the avoidance of doubt, if the people of Ondo State ever consider to give Akeredolu an opportunity to run the State affairs for a second term, they should be ready to pay taxes for everything in the State – in a manner that will further impoverish them.
Despite the available fund in the State, the government is deliberately keeping the people in poverty so as to take advantage of the situation through their ‘ dibo ko sebe’ agenda on election day.
As we speak now, salaries are still being owed while pensioners are not allowed to enjoy the fruit of their long labour.
It is curious to note that government at this time is talking about giving palliatives to political parties while its core objective is being neglected.
With what was displayed yesterday, we know the plan of the government is nothing short of taxation – no wonder the only project inaugurated is a tax house.
Ondo State people must be wise enough to give a red card to a government which agenda is to make life unpleasant through different types of collection.
