Cool FM’s On-Air Personality, OAP, Freeze, has called on the Federal Government to place 30% tax levy on churches or mosques that collect offerings, gifts, tithes and other revenues from their members, instead of increasing internet data tariffs.
He said this after the Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC, directed telecommunication operators to increase the price of data tariffs by December 1.
Although the NCC had on Wednesday announced the suspension of its plan to increase the price of data, the outspoken media personality, on his Instagram page @daddyfreeze, wrote: “Dear Federal Government, this regime cannot be all hardship.
“The suffering is too much!!! So far, it has been plagued by loss of jobs, hike in foodstuff, loss of value of the Naira against the Dollar, hike in petroleum products etc.
“Increasing the price of data will be seen by the masses as grossly insensitive, as this remains our greatest source of entertainment, information and education.
“Instead of this, why don’t you place a 30% tax levy on any church or mosque that collects offering, gifts and tithe and you will be amazed at how much revenue you will realize,” he added.
