A Nation of Stamps – Tekedia Forum – Tekedia

The Federal Government of Nigeria plans to simply go to the Supreme Court and conclude the issues on VAT collection. Some Nigerian states and the federal government have been at loggerheads on who will collect VAT in the nation.

"The Federal Government had indeed taken cognisance of the fact that where there exists a dispute between a state and the Federal Government, it is the Supreme Court that should naturally have the jurisdiction to determine the dispute between the state and the federation. And we are taking steps to consider the possibility of instituting an action before the Supreme Court for the purpose of having this matter determined once and for all.” Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami
