Also at the plenary, the Majority Leader, Mr Kehinde Subair, presented a motion on the need to regulate demand for multiple tax clearance certificates by public secondary schools in the state.

Subair said that there were inconsistencies and abnormalities in the demand for tax clearance from parents or guardians by school authorities.

“It is reported that parents and guardians that have two or three children in different public schools are requested to produce two or three tax clearances separately.

“The demand for two or more tax clearances from a single parent who have children in different public schools is not tenable and need to be addressed,” he said.

Subair noted that the financial implication would be multiple taxes on parents with pupils in different schools in the state.

“This is worrisome and calls for urgent intervention by all stakeholders in order to correct public perception about the good intention of the government,” he said. (NAN)
