The Oyo State Government has said it shut down the operations of Obasanjo Farms in Ibadan because the organisation failed to pay it tax against the alleged political reasons.
Bicci Alli, Chairman of Oyo State Board of Internal Revenue made the disclosure in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, on Thursday.
According to him: “Our process and procedures are not driven by political consideration. We work for the state government and the intention is to bring in revenue following due process.
“We have been doing some exercises in the last two days, unfortunately people are trying to read political meanings to our action; we never did that because of politics.
“We went to enforce and restrain the activities in Obasanjo Farms in Ibadan because the organisation did not pay what it was supposed to pay as tax.
“I am glad to tell you that they have come back to pay what they are supposed to and their business premises has since been reopened.
“There is no relationship between tax payment and politics as far as we are concerned and we do the needful and whoever is involved, we make sure they pay.”
He noted that payment of taxes is statutory and moral duty, which is the civic responsibility of all citizens.
