      Maybe, maybe not. This could be where he gets caught (under Buhari’s watch)

      Caught doing his job? You & Noone else can prove otherwise. Nigerians hate to see other people living well. They automatically have to be stealing. God have mercy on your judging soul.

      Co-sign what Busarni said, he most definitely is your sugar pie. Are you kidding me??!!! Tunde Fowler in cahoots with Tinubu looted BILLIONS in bribes and whatnot in Lagos state. How Buhari could appoint him is beyond me. After three terms in Lagos State, now Federal and we are supposedly “fighting” corruption? okay now, kontinu.

    We should not shy away from protesting against any for of harassment to get tax to the disadvantage of the people to favour the few, Mr fowler I expect you come t review the tax law base on practical happenings in the open market not by theory of the books

    Bubari’s first wrong decision, when it comes to appointment. The masses haven’t complained till now….. I think this appointment should be revoked immediately, except baba has a plan.

      I agree and it will be more difficult for him to misappropriate funds at the federal level.

      Sound bite – He will “upgrade them” from Yaris cars to Camry cars!

    Baba Fowler knows what he is doing o. I do not believe he would accept this position and think he could get away with theft on the federal level. You broke miserable people should go make a difference in your community instead of whining like bitches on a blog. Misery, hatred and LAZINESS dwells in Naija. Find or create your own lane and master it.

      Omo Baba Olowo! @ Wade, people like you are usually from the gutter! Defending the un defendable. Pls. who is this your rich father? People who come from money are usually very refined. You are not. Except of course your father is olowo “ojiji” aka naija politician. Even at that, one generation after, your ole father, poverty and ruin is the lot of people like you.
