The Chairman of the service, Mr. Muhammad Nami represented by the Connecting Director, Enforcement Support group of the Service, Mr. Israel Zuberu said the key motivating factor for this year’s fair were partnership and stakeholders engagement.
Mr. Zuberu said, “in spite of covid, in spite of the endsars protest, we have to keep moving, we have to leave whatever might have been the setbacks and continue to move ahead”.
He said the Service would use the opportunity of the fair to engage stakeholders to make them understand much more about the concept of taxation and how they can contribute to the Commonwealth of Nigeria.
“We’re still exploring means of ensuring that things are much easier for them”, Zuberu said.
The Lagos International Trade fair which is scheduled to close on the 13th of December is on its third day.
