The Gombe State Government has appealed to Southern State Governments to reconsider their push to keep Value Added Tax (VAT) generated from their states.

Muhammad Magaji, the state’s Commissioner for Finance and Economic Creation, made the appeal at the start of a Technical Workshop on the development of the state’s Medium-Term Sector Strategy (MTSS).

He stated that the other states, particularly those in the Southern region, should set emotions aside and become their brothers’ keepers in sharing the VAT produced in their respective jurisdictions.

The demand came in response to Governors Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos and Nyesom Wike of Rivers taking moves to begin VAT collection in their respective states.
