However, it is interesting to know that the committee saddled with this onerous responsibility has a young Nigerian, Miss Orire Agbaje as one of its members, thereby underscoring the place of young persons in national development.

She is a 400-level student in the Economics Department of the University of Ibadan (UI) in Oyo State.

Despite her status, Agbaje and other tax experts, and key private sector stakeholders have been saddled with the responsibility of harmonising taxes in the country to boost revenue.
According to Tinubu, “The Committee, in the first instance, is expected to deliver a schedule of quick reforms that can be implemented within 30 days.

“Critical reform measures should be recommended within six months, and full implementation will take place within one calendar year.”

Taiwo Oyedele, a tax and fiscal policy expert, is the committee’s chairman.
