EFCC To Re-Arraign Ladoja For Alleged N4.7bn Fraud

A former governor of Oyo State, Rashidi Ladoja, is most likely to be tried afresh for alleged N4.7bn fraud, external prosecutor for the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Mr Oluwafemi Olabisi, hinted on Thursday.

But in a chat with our correspondent on Thursday, Olabisi said Ladoja and Akanbi would most likely be tried afresh in view of the recent Supreme Court’s decision in the N7.1bn fraud case of a former Abia State governor, Orji Uzor Kalu, his company,...

We Must Tax The Rich Mercilessly – Aregbesola

Rauf Aregbesola, minister of interior, says for Nigeria to solve the problem of poverty, the rich must be taxed mercilessly. Speaking at the 70th birthday of Abiola Ajimobi, former governor of Oyo state, he said tax from the rich could be used to create wealth to help the poor. “We must mercilessly tax the rich, if we are to cure the problem of poverty. We have two contending forces, the poor and the privileged rich,” he said. “The rich have no problem, they are comfortable. The problem is the poor and they are in the majority. And the point is if the rich failed to address this problem, the comfort of the rich will be taken away, so they must release much of their money to help the poor.” This is not the first time that Aregbesola will make known his position on taxing wea...
