By Naomi Uzor
Speaking at a stakeholders’ meeting organised by
the Lagos Chambers of Commerce and Industry,
LCCI, on CST bill which seeks to levy nine per cent on
subscribers for the use of the various
communication services, Shittu said the outcome of
deliberations on the bill would form the basis of his
advice to the President.

The services include voice call, SMS, MMS, Data
usage from telecommunication service providers,
internet service providers and Pay TV Stations.
He noted that introduction of new taxes without
harmonising existing ones would put pressure on
the country’s tax system thereby making it
unattractive to investors.
