President Bola Tinubu has instructed the immediate execution of recommendations stemming from a report on the “quick-win achievements” tinubu proposed by the Presidential Fiscal Policy and Tax Reform Committee.
This directive was issued during a meeting between the president and the committee at Aso Villa, Abuja, as conveyed by Ajuri Ngelale, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity.
Ngelale revealed that President Tinubu provided the directive when the committee’s chairman, Taiwo Oyedele, presented the report.
Furthermore, the president tasked George Akume, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, with overseeing the implementation of these recommendations across various ministries, agencies, and departments within the federal government.
The rationale behind disseminating these proposals throughout government entities is to ensure efficient coordination and integration during their execution, as emphasized by the presidential special adviser.
While the specific policy recommendations were not disclosed by Ngelale, it was mentioned that President Tinubu intends to prioritize the presentation of these recommendations during the next Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting, scheduled for the upcoming Monday.
Following a presentation by the committee chairman, President Tinubu directed Hadiza Usman, the Special Adviser to the President on Policy Coordination, to collaborate with the Secretary to the Government of the Federation and the Chairman of the Tax Policy Review Committee.
This collaboration aims to expedite the adoption of the committee’s recommendations within all ministries, departments, and agencies (MDAs) of the federal government to ensure effective synergy.
President Tinubu has also stressed the importance of ensuring that tax authorities focus on taxing the fruit rather than the seed, affirming that this will remain a focal point in the implementation of tax policies.
