She questioned the basis for such high personal income taxes and criticised the lack of transparency in the calculation process. The actress referred to a previous encounter where she complied with the government’s request to explain her earnings and declare her income but received no response.

Taking to her Instagram post, she wrote, “@jidesanwoolu @lagosstategovt, please, how do you people come up with these outrageous personal income taxes you send on a daily basis? After paying for different types of taxes for one’s businesses, house & all…. you still come up with all this huge amount and give me 7 days to pay up, lol.”

“Last time, you people asked me to come to your office, I came, you asked me to explain and declare what I earn, which I did with my tax consultant, but no you did not respond to my letter, because you want me to pay you an outrageous amount that I do not have, make I go thief ni? I ask again, ‘How do you people come up with such outrageous bills?”

“What have you people ever done for me as a government? NOTHING. Since you guys insist, You can gladly come and close down my business, arrest me, jail me, or kill me for all I care, we all will die one day.”
