General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye has kicked against the proposed increase of VAT from 5 percent to 7.5 percent by the federal government.
The proposal, he said, will further increase the burdens on Nigerians.
Adeboye also said the proposed reintroduction of toll gates on federal government was insensitive.
The plan, he said, shouldn’t be considered at a time most federal roads were in pitiable conditions.
He further pointed out the closure of borders to importation of rice was ill-conceived because it has made the stable unavailable to most Nigerians.
Adeboye said, the federal government should henceforth focus on initiating policies that would lessen the sufferings and burdens of Nigerians.
Such policies, he said, should have the capability to move the country out of doldrums, make her arise and pitch her tent with comity of nations.
