The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami has come out to kick against renewed attempts by the Federal Government to add a five per cent excise duty to telecommunication services.

He recently revealed this while speaking in Lagos at the ongoing exhibition organised by the Nigeria Office for Developing the indigenous Telecom Sector, an agency domiciled in the Nigerian Communications Commission.

According to him, the telecom sector already contributes a lot to the Nigerian economy, and adding more taxes could impact its growth negatively.

He then begged the government to consider taxing other sectors of the economy that are not contributing to national development.
