Iya Ojo being attacked
Iyabo Ojo on N18m alleged unpaid tax bills: “Close source said I’m being attacked because I supported Peter Obi”
Remember that Iyabo Ojo criticized Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and the whole administration on her page in the wee hours of yesterday for sending her an exorbitant tax bill?
She bemoaned how she has been paying various tax bills for her business and home and how she was handed an enormous tax bill with a 7-day deadline for payment.
She has this to say:
“I don’t know how much you think I get paid. Hence, your team will come up with this conclusion. What have you people ever done for me as a government? NOTHING!!! I have single-handedly raised my kids & so many others, plus myself without a single denial from the government. Yet you feel so entitled to reaping over 100% from where you did not sow. I have worked, and I’m still working tirelessly to survive in this country without the support of the government, but….”
“You can gladly come and close down my business, arrest me, jail me, or kill me for all I care …. we all will die one day & I will never be afraid of what will eventually be everyone’s faith… what I do not have I can not give .”
Iyabo Ojo revealed in an Instagram live video that she has been told by a close source that she is under attack because she endorsed Peter Obi for the Labour Party.
She highlighted that she cannot be intimidated or shaken in a recent message that was seen on her page because she will never submit to tribal racists.
“I stand & re stan obediently on my beliefs. I can never be pressured or shaken. I will never bow down to tribal bigots… I want a better Nigeria, I don’t care whose ego gets bruised. We can not all believe in the same thing. I see no tr!be. I only see my country. I’m a Nigerian… I am not afraid of death, for that is inevitable. I will never be afraid to air my opinion, for that is my right…
I have no enemies. We may not all believe in the same course, we may not see things the same way but you’re not my enemy bcos at the end of the day, either, good or bad. We’re in together. We’re all citizens of Nigeria.
I have empathy for my country & not for stomach infrastructure. If after 8 years Nigeria has renewed hope, then my beliefs may change, but till then, I obediently stand on my beliefs.
If you didn’t make me, you can’t break me, you can take the body but never my soul”.
