The All Progressives Congress (APC) has come out to call for the postponement of the May 22, LG election in the state.

This was recently revealed by the Chairman of APC in the state, Chief Akin Oke, while addressing the media at a Press Conference organised by the Association of Local government of Nigeria (ALGON).

According to him, the postponement will help to allow the APC to participate in the election in fair manner as they are currently at a disadvantage.

He added that APC never wanted to be part of the preparation for that election at the initial stage because they felt the dissolution of democratically elected chairmen and councillors was illegal.

His words, “We could not be part of the preparation for that election at the initial stage because we felt the dissolution of democratically elected chairmen and councillors was illegal.”

β€œNow that we have been vindicated, it is thus right for the government to give a level playing field in order for us to test our popularity.”

β€œOther Manufacturing generated the highest amount of VAT with N49.41 billion generated and closely followed by Professional Services generating N42.50 billion, State Ministries & Parastatals generating N26.96 billion while Mining generated the least and closely followed by Pioneering and Textile and Garment Industry with N48.36 million, N77.01million and N289.41million generated respectively.”

“Out of the total amounted generated in Q1’21, N224.85 billion was generated as Non-Import VAT locally while N171.66 billion was generated as Non-Import VAT for foreign. The balance of N99.88 billion was generated as NCS-Import VAT.”
