Senator Shehu Sani (PRP-Kaduna Central) has reacted to the warning of Bola Tinubu to President Muhammadu Buhari.
Speaking at a colloquium held to commemorate his 67th birthday on Wednesday, Tinubu advised the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government not to increase the value-added tax (VAT).
“I must say this to Prof Osinbajo and his team, don’t increase VAT but increase tax net to accommodate those who are not yet paying.
“Don’t reduce the people’s purchasing power,” Tinubu said. “We must criticise ourselves,” he added.
Reacting in a post on his Twitter handle, Shehu Sani slammed the Presidency for not attacking Tinubu over his comments.
He wrote: “Jagaban has spoken his truth and they are quiet, but if it’s another person they would have counter or ask why are you embarrassing the President publicly ‘when you have private channels of advising him’.”
