DELEGATES at the on- going National Conference  Tuesday voted that henceforth, Churches and Mosques will be paying tax to the federal government, just as they also agreed that Federal and state governments should no longer fund Christian and Muslim pilgrimages to the Holy  lands.
These were part of the resolutions reached yesterday during discussions of report of Religion Committee.
The decision to make religious bodies pay taxes came up when a delegate representing Civil Organisations, Mallam Naseer Kura during his contribution on the report had raised it that religious leaders were making much money and should be taxed.
Also in his contribution, a delegate representing the Nigeria Guild of Editors, Isaac Ighure however frowned at the situation where pastors and heads of churches make too much money with some of them owning private jets, just as he stressed that they should be made to pay taxes and the elite class must stop abusing the little ones in the society, “some people buy private jets when people in their churches are suffering and living in abject poverty, they should be made to pay taxes.”
  WHAT DO YOU THINK  should churches and Mosques pay taxes?

It's about time.since these ignoramus fools keep sowing a seed that only this so call men of God reaps, sowing some of those seeds should be a bare minimum.lets see how they feel when those taxes are then-as usual-abused as they've been doing to their members for decades.

I SUPPORT THE MOVE. NOW, WE SHALL FINALLY KNOW HOW AND WHERE AND WHAT EXACTLY BRINGS IN THE HUGE SUM OF MONIES. THE MULTI-MILLION NAIRA MANSIONS, THE EXOTIC CARS, EXPENSIVE DRESSINGS, JEWELRY, THE LAVISH LIFE STYLE, THE PRIVATE JETS, TITHES AND OFFERINGS PEOPLE GIVE TO GOD WITH THEIR HEARTS WHILE PASTORS/REVERENDS/BISHOPS ONLY MONOPOLIZE FOR SELF USE. PARTICULARLY, THE MONIES POLITICIANS STEAL FROM GOVERNMENT AND GIVE TO CLERGYMEN TO DEPOSIT IN THEIR CHURCH DOMESTIC AND FOREIGN ACCOUNTS TO AVOID DICTATION. ONCE THEY START PAYING THEIR TAXES THEN THE SOURCES WILL BE KNOWN.

BUT  THAT  IS  THERE  LUCK  AS  FOR  ME  I  AM  NOW  WISE  I  WAS  ONCE  A  VICTIM  OF  THIS  SO  CALLED  CHURCHES.
I  AM  NOT  SAYING  I  AM  NOT  A  CHRISTIAN.

imposing this tax is a kind of greedy to those people who re in positions of such ide, although its a good idea for the govt to get revenues also through tax,if only the proceeds from the tax collecting ll be use for the necessary development in the nation,taxes cannot just been pay by some people them few ll pocket it,No.
