VAT Dispute: Appeal Court Reserves Ruling on Lagos Govt’s Application for Joinder
The Court of Appeal in Abuja has reserved its ruling on the application for a joinder filed by the Lagos State government as the legal tussle over the collection of Value Added Tax (VAT) continues.
When the court resumed sitting on Thursday, the Attorney General of Lagos State and Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Moyesore Onigbanjo, began the day’s hearing by taking his application for joinder in the suit.
Onigbanjo informed the panel of judges led by Justice Haruna Tsammani that Lagos was entitled to collect VAT, stressing that the VAT Act was approved by an order of the court, although it has been annulled.
Onigbanjo stated that going by the submissions of the FIRS, Lagos State has already enacted the VAT law and it would lead to another action if they were not allowed to be joined in the suit.
He, therefore, urged the court to uphold the application for joinder, arguing that the case of joinder sought to prevent multiplicity of action.
