The acting Executive Chairman of FIRS, Alhaji Kabir Mashi who was represented by FIRS Coordinating Director, Hajia Queensley Seghosime said “The programme will provide a platform for research into global tax trends developments and good practices, with a laid foundation to mainstream taxation into academic curriculum of schools as a major boost of tax payer’s education campaign.”
He stated that “the objective of the Student Tax Advocacy Initiative (STAI) is to catch the children young, empower the youths with information that will help them understand the importance of taxation and their roles in establishing taxation as the most sustainable source of funding for development”.
According to Robo Oduwole, Chief Operating Officer of STAI, who spoke at the event, said “students are more literate in tax matter than ever before and in over 168, 000 schools across six geo political zones of the country, adding that the establishment of Students Advocate for Tax (SAT) clubs was gradually instilling salient tax ideals in young people.”
“The SAT is a programme specially designed to educate students between the ages of seven and 25 on taxation and to enlist them as tax advocates because they have the potential and abilities to make changes in society, and if given adequate support can do more to contribute their quota to national development”
