Government creates economic prosperity by inducing consumption, savings and investment. When people are happy as a result of Government actions , the society progresses and Government share of the dividend comes in form of tax .
Dr Alex Otti captures GGM position when he said that increasing State internal generated revenue doesn’t mean increasing tax and chasing Keke and bike drivers around , it requires advancing the standard of living of citizens . Government gives hope to the generality of people by providing affordable housing,access to good health, quality and affordable education , modern market ,modern and mechanized mechanic villages,farm settlements,good road among others. With people on the side of their Government,they can build modern society without Abuja handouts .
Accordingly,people will happily pay tax when they are making income . This is where Prof Soludo fails and that is why he has lost goodwill to inspire the people . Ndubuisi
