The Appeal Court sitting in Abuja has ordered the Rivers State government to refrain from any action giving effect to the Judgment of August 9 which conferred powers to collect Value Added Tax VAT and Personal Income Tax.

Delivering the ruling on an appeal by the Federal Inland Revenue Service FIRS seeking stay of execution of the judgment and injunction, a panel headed by Justice Haruna Tsammani urged parties in the suit to hold on pending determination of a motion by Lagos State to join as interested party.

The Appeal Court panel therefore adjourned till 16 September for hearing on the motion by the Lagos State government seeking to be joined as interested party.
