Seyi blasts government over cyber security levy

In a rant on the social media platform, X formerly known as Twitter, the public figure pleaded with the ruling party to allow the poor breathe.

He also revisited other important matters that need the attention of the government.

Here is what he said below:

“I hate when government agencies don’t speak up to the understanding of the citizens and allow wrong narratives to fester before tackling it. Cybersecurity level, according to the act, is 0.005%, and different figures from 0.5% to 3% are being thrown around. A 0.5% charge in the Nigeria of today is in itself too much punishment on Nigerians. Are we trying to discourage banking transactions again and encourage cash keeping? should revisit this abeg. Stamp duty is something, and now this. It is unacceptable, let the poor breathe. When will the new minimum wage be announced and implemented? Some of your ministers need to look for another job. One year is here and we are counting.”
