The President, West African Union of Tax Institutes (WAUTI), Mr Kunle Quadri, on Saturday urged Nigerians to desist from destructive criticism of government policies in the interest of national growth.
Quadri told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that constructive criticisms would enable governments to evolve policies that would protect the interest of the people.
He said that although some laws and policies were not favourable to the masses, Nigerians must always express their views properly.
``For instance, there are existing laws in the nation’s tax system which are not in the best interest of the masses.
He said that the situation resulted in multiple taxation.
Quadri said that multiple taxation persisted because taxpayers were not adequately represented in the decision making.
The WAUTI boss said that the nation’s tax system would be better when the people were involved in decision making
“Whenever tax issues come up in other countries, stakeholders arise and make meaningful submission to the parliament.''
He advised the citizens to participate well in any referendum that could be called by government to amend any laws.
