    Ethical taxation strong tool for economic development – expert

    Dr Lateef Agbetunde, Chief lecturer, Accountancy Department, Yaba College of Technology (YABATECH), has said that ethical taxation remained a strong tool for  control and sustenance of an economy.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Agbetunde made the assertion in a paper he delivered at YABATECH’s 14th Inaugural Lecture.

    The lecture delivered on Thursday evening was entitled “A Stitch in Time Saves Humanity: Proposing Ethical Taxation for Sustainable Development’’.

    Agbetunde, Member, Chartered Institute of Taxation of Nigeria, said: “As responsible citizens, we must be ethical in the payment of taxes as part of our loyalty to support government in such a way that SDGs can be guaranteed.  

    “Taxation, as a regulatory instrument, is relevant to the implementation of the SDGs through ensuring social justice, inclusion, peace, partnership, economic and environmental conservation.

    “This is not peculiar to Nigeria but obtainable in other African countries; evidences exist that taxation had been used as instrument of governance even before colonisation.

    ” Agbetunde urged that ethical approaches must be ensured at  tax policy formulation phase, tax law enactment phase and tax administration phase.

    The chief lecturer described system condition indicators as having to do with concerns for the effects of taxation on people’s health, wealth and level of satisfaction “Value creation indicators concern both economic and social values through the enrichment of individuals, communities, businesses and natural environment,’’ he said.

    The chief lecturer also listed factors that could influence citizens’ decision to pay taxes to  include attitude, , tax fairness, governance, trust in government and demographic factors such as age, gender, religion, income level, culture, employment type and residence.  

    Agbetunde said that for sustainability to be ensured, there must be a symbiotic relationship between governments and citizens whereby governments would discharge their responsibilities through efficient performance, and citizens would  effectively pay taxes.   

    In his remarks,the Rector of YABATECH,  Obafemi Omokungbe, said that the lecture was timely.

    He described the presentation as flawless and thought-provoking.

    Omokungbe said that Agbetunde conceptualised ethical taxation relationship with the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals).

    “To make the lecture more understanding, Agbetunde offered the model for ethical taxation on the framework that considering social, environmental and economic issues, governments should ethically generate wealth through taxation.

    He noted that the chief lecturer urged that taxation should be embraced as a means of sustainably improving quality of life, especially for those living in poverty.

    Mr Joe Ejiofor, Deputy Registrar of YABATECH, said that the institution’s inaugural lecture series provided an enabling environment for a lecturer to share his experience with the public on researches he had made.  

    “It is indeed a well-researched work.

    By this singular act, he has not only identified the problems but also made relevant recommendations,’’ he said.  

    The deputy registrar urged academics to conduct researches that would provide more solutions in the society.

    Campus killing: YABATECH beefs up security

    Yaba College of Technology (YABATECH) says the security architecture of the institution has been beefed up with the presence of the police to complement its internal security unit.

    The Deputy of Public Relations, Mr Joe Ejiofor, said this against the backdrop of the Sept.15 shooting incident in the college that led to the death of a male HND1 Graphics student.

    The shooting, suspected to have been carried out by cult members, had caused panic among students.

    Ejiofor, who described the death as painful, told the News Agency of Nigeria on Friday that the news came as a rude shock.

    “In spite the recent sad incident that recorded the death of a student, the college management is still committed to its duty of safeguarding lives and properties of staffers and students on campus.

    “These and other proactive measures are being put in place to ensure that similar shooting incident does not happen again.

    “The death of the young boy is a very sad one, we don’t have information as to what led to the shooting that resulted to the unpleasant development but the police are on top of it.

    “I am optimistic that when they are done with their investigation, they will oblige necessary information to the public.

    “However, the college has zero tolerance for vices or immoral traits that can trigger violence,” he said.

    The YABATECH official noted that a compulsory orientation programme was usually organised at the beginning of every academic session for new intakes.

    According to him, the essence of this orientation is to let the students be in tune with the rules and regulations.

    This, he said, trickles down to the schools and departments in the college.

    Ejiofor said that violators of the college rules as spelt out would be sanctioned appropriately as part of discipline and a warning measure for other students on campus.

    The College Deputy Registrar appealed to parents and guardians to keep watch on their wards.

    He said some of the students were leaving home for the first time and needed to be constantly monitored.

    “It is not out of place for parents to pay unscheduled visits to their children in school to see first-hand how they live, although the orientation we organise every session has also served this purpose.

    “As a responsible and responsive management, the lives of our students are very paramount.

    “We will continue to ensure law and order reigns in the college, so that the safety of our staff and students are collectively assured,” he said.

    Ejiofor said the college frowned at cultism, drug abuse, prostitution, examination malpractice and other immortal activities.

    YABATECH set to launch N50bn endowment fund

    The Yaba College of Technology (YABATECH) has concluded arrangements to launch its N50 billion Endowment Fund project, which is to be chaired by a former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo.    

    Mr Joe Ejiofor, Deputy Registrar of Yaba College of Technology, told the News Agency of Nigeria on Wednesday in Lagos that the event would hold Sept. 15, at Eko Hotels & Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.  

    Ejiofor described the Endowment fund project as a clarion call on the alumni, friends, corporate bodies and agencies to come on board the developmental train of the college.  

    “Over the years, the college, established 75 years ago, has continued to grapple with obvious and peculiar problems.  

    “These deficits include infrastructure, obsolete and nonfunctional equipment in the laboratories, space constraints, increase in the number of academic programmes and rise in student population.  

    “This Endowment fund project is to enjoin friends of the college to join the train and be counted as developmental partners so that these obvious and peculiar problems are bridged and reduced to the barest minimum,” he added.

    The deputy registrar said that the College has a second campus sitting on 45 acres of land at Odoragushin in Epe. He said that the land was acquired with the support of the Lagos State Government, during the administration of Sir Michael Otedola.  

    According to Ejiofor, development in the Epe campus is going on full swing.  

    He said the School of Technical Education, Department of Agric Technology, Leisure and Tourism and Marine Engineering were currently functioning for the Epe campus.  

    Ejiofor said that the Endowment Fund, which started in 2018 under the current management led by Mr Obafemi Omokungbe, was to improve the lot of the institution.  

    “This was given full approval by the Prince Lateef Fagbemi-led governing board, which led to the constitution of the college endowment fund committee.  

    “Aside from financial donations, support is also expected in the form of legacy projects, scholarships and study fellowships, and donations of books, journals and teaching aids,” he said.  

    Ejiofor, who doubled as the Head of Public Relations, said that the endowment fund would be managed by a Board of Trustees comprising of credible Nigerians who have made giant strides in the public and private sectors.  

    According to him, the mandate of the Board is to administer the fund in perpetuity and ensure judicious utilisation for the benefit of the college and the donors.  

    “The main hope of a nation lies in the proper education of its youths, the N50 billion Endowment is, therefore, an idea whose time has come, an investment in the future,” he said.

    Mr Joe Ejiofor, Deputy Registrar, YABATECH, told NAN on Saturday that it was not a solitary decision by the college to shut down academic activities.

     

    According to him, the management of the lnstitution does not have control over the decision of ASUP which YABATECH happens to be a chapter under it.

     

    “ASUP has given a directive to all its chapters to embark on a two-week warning strike, starting from May 16, and YABATECH chapter is complying with the industrial strike of the national body.

     

    “For clearer understanding, it is not a decision of YABATECH as an institution that is going on strike or shutting down academic activities but ASUP chapter of the College.

     

    “However, as a responsible and responsive management that are passionate about the general future of our students, we will continue to appeal to College ASUP Chapter.

     

    ” It should put into consideration the interest of students, who in most cases, turn out to be the greatest victims of strikes whenever there are such crises in our institutions,” he added.

     

    Meanwhile, Mr Olagoke Oluwafemi, Public Relations Officer, ASUP YABATECH Chapter, also told NAN that the body had an emergency congress on Friday.

     

    Olufemi said: “At the end of our emergency congress, we decided to shut down all academic activities on campus, effective from Monday 16th of May 13, 2022.

     

    “The national body has given us the directive and as a chapter, we are in full support of the strike call made by the national leadership of the union.”

     

    According to him, ASUP suspended its industrial action declared on April 6, 2021 on the 10th of June, 2021, following the signing of a Memorandum of Action (MoA) with the government.

     

    “The signed MoA contained a clear path to a sustainable resolution of the issues in dispute with timelines attached to each of the items in dispute.

     

    “Part of the demand is for the release of the approved revitalisation fund for the sector, approved N15bn yet to be released 11 months after approval by the President.

     

    “Non-release of arrears of the new minimum wage, the owed 10 months arrears for the Polytechnics is yet to be released.

     

    “The composite amount covering all Federal Tertiary Institutions to the approximate figure of N19bn currently exists as an AIE in the Accountant General’s Office.”
