Shehu Sani, who is a Nigerian senator, an author, playwright, and a human rights activist, has taken to his official Twitter handle to speak on the issue regarding the collection of Value Added Tax (VAT) in the Southern region.
It could be recalled that the 17 Southern governors rose from a meeting in Enugu State few days ago with the aim of backing the state's collection of Value Added Tax (VAT), and reiterated its position that the next President of the country should come from the Southern region.
Based on these notes, the President of the Civil Rights Congress of Nigeria, Shehu Sani revealed that the Northerners wants to retain VAT and power while the Southerners wants to keep VAT and have power, adding that everyone wants to have everything for himself.

This particular statement has attracted a lot of attention as many Nigerians took to the comment box to share their thoughts. The majority is of the view that the Value Added Tax should be collected by the state and not by the federal government.
