The ultimate role model, the of all master, Jesus Christ-the king of kings’- mental intelligence was once tested by the loquacious Pharisees and his views on paying tax was put to test
They wanted to know if it is right for men to pay tax or not, they knew the right answer, but wanted to hear a confirmation or a place in a zigzag parallel line
Not one to call a spade by marines name, Jesus Christ was emphatic in his revert, He pointed to them: “PAY WHAT BELONG TO CAESAR, AND PAY WHAT BELONGS TO CHRIST TO CHRIST “,
that was Christ conclusion
The summary of this point is that the art of paying of tax is part of being total and decent in the fragile life we live, and this point was what rising singing sensation, Juliet Obieh aka African Booboosha have just collaborated, when asked her advice  for the future leaders or champions of tomorrow
While highlighting over ten key point, in a soon to be published project work on her by communications unit, her stand on paying tax by youths’ must be taking seriously, the younger generation must think of tax tax tax, paying of tax is biblical
·                    And to that she has this to say Always know that you will pay your tax either you are a student or not, so you must  have the habit of working Part time job, and ready to give a part of your earnings  to the government, for  abroad is not Africa where we dodge tax indiscriminately, to pay tax is to help Government develop your city, help fund your education among other benefits “
This is no doubt big deal business, paying tax is a lifestyle and
booboosha must be commended for such motivation arising from benefit of tax paying

The Lagos inland Revenue service (LIRS) the doyen of tax business in Nigerian and currently led by Executive Chairman, Folarin Ogunsanwo, who must be commended for the efficiency and dynamism in running a tax body, must find a way to get global young Nigerians in Diaspora like Booboosha, used to lifestyle of paying tax in foreign land to come back home and preach the need for all Nigerians youths to learn art of paying tax

·                    Big ups Booboosha for preaching tax payments like Jesus Christ
·                    Big ups also to LIRS……………..for pushing and fighting all Lagosians via giant bill board display and advertorials on need to pay tax or be arrested
