Yoruba Nollywood actress Iyabo Ojo has asked the public to come to her aid after she was slammed an amount close to 38million naira as income tax by the Lagos Inland Revenue Service LIRS.
The business mogul took to her Instagram page to reveal how doing business has been really frustrating in the country and how she has been struggling to cope with all the expenses that come with the businesses. She queried where she should get such a huge amount of money from, if from the profit she hardly makes or the movie industry where actors are poorly paid.
She further said that she may have to close down the business which she had started in 2014, noting that she is a single mom with a load of burden to carry. Tagging Lagos State Governor Jide SanwoOlu, she wrote, “Well! it’s so sad that I may have to finally close down my business soon 😔….. because I don’t even know how or where to start this negotiation with Lagos State from, I’m still struggling with making profit, after paying rent, salaries, maintenance, electricity, local & state govt taxes in different categories & levy, I hardly make little or no profit ….
