During the fuel crisis that made life much more unbearable for Nigerians, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde, launched a campaign with the hashtag #DontPushMe where she claimed the government are not doing enough despite all the taxes she and so many others pay…
In light of that, E-247 Magazine gathered from a source at the Lagos Internal Revenue Service (LIRS) that despite Omotola’s claims, she has never filed tax income returns.
“It is unfortunate she has become so vocal, criticizing the government but ignorant of her obligation as a citizen to pay tax. She is not tax compliant. She failed to know that it is from the tax that she and others pay that government will provide all the amenities and infrastructures she mentioned. She needs a lot of education.”
However, Omotola’s reps have denied the story of her not filing her tax returns. Her rep said:
“That is not correct at all, we will send out a press release very soon. We are working with the government to find out who released that article.”
