Columns and Opinions across Nigerian Newspapers


Of Rule of Law and Tax - I was in a session once where David Cameron (the former British Prime Minister) was asked if he were made an adviser to the Nigerian government what he would advise. At that time, he eulogized Nigeria and the intelligence of its people but did say that while he believed Nigerians could chart a way for themselves given what her nationals were doing in Britain and around the world, he had learnt a few things in government that he thinks he could share. He said he has learnt that governments really come down to two things, which are, the rule of law and taxes.
