The Committee for the Protection of Peoples Mandate (CPPM) on Thursday approached the Federal High Court Abuja for an Order of Mandamus compelling the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) “to make available either directly to the Applicants or through the Courts, copies of the 2015 and 2016 Tax Receipts of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar”.

The suit followed the refusal of FIRS to accede to the group’s letter dated Friday, November 16, 2018 seeking the provision of the said information within seven working days. CPPM’s request was made under Section 1(1) and (2) and Section 4(A) of the Freedom of Information.

CPPM National Coordinator Nelson Ekujumi and Trustee Solomon Sobade said yesterday in a statement: “From our private investigation, it has come to our knowledge that Alhaji Atiku Abubakar may not have been paying his personal income taxes AS AT WHEN DUE. We wonder how he intends to get Nigeria working again if he has been a tax dodger.

“We have instituted this court action for the purpose of enlightening Nigerians about the electoral process as well as campaigning for the accountability of public office holders and aspirants.”
