Fayemi lamented that “rich hardly pay taxes” and so if he is elected, he will ensure that the rich pay more taxes.

Former Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, also shares the same sentiments.

Addressing members of the press on Wednesday in Abuja, after he declared his intention to run for the seat of the President, Oshiomhole said he will appropriately tax the rich to provide amenities for the poor.

“It is in the interest of the rich to pay that tax so they can enjoy their wealth,” he said saying that he will purchase the All Progressives Congress (APC) nomination and expression of interest forms in the next few hours.
