Falana to FG: Propose Money Bill before VAT increment

Human Rights Lawyer, Femi Falana, has called on the Federal Government to propose a Money Bill to the National Assembly before the implementation of the increase in Value Added Tax (VAT).

Falana told newsmen in Abuja on Friday, September 20, that the National Assembly (NASS) erred by inviting the Minister of Finance and the Executive Chairman of Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) to clarify issues of VAT increment.

According to him, provisions of the constitution states that the President ought to have presented a money bill to be passed by the NASS before the increment.
