Senator representing Borno South, Ali Ndume, has condemned the cybersecurity levy recently introduced by the Central Bank of Nigeria.

According to the lawmaker, it is improper for the government to continue to impose levy on the citizens when their income is not increasing.

Senator Ndume who was a guest on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Friday, said that the proposed cybersecurity levy will increase the tax burden on Nigerians.

He said: “You cannot be loading taxes on people when you are not increasing their income. Their source of income, you are not widening it, you are not increasing it. I am not part of those that support levying people anyhow.”

“Looking at the nitty-gritty would have been the responsibility of interested parties. If I had known there is an issue where a cost would be transferred to a customer or a Nigerian I would not agree,”
