FIRS Seals Ex-Minister’s Hotel Over Tax Debt

The Federal Inland Revenue Service, FIRS, has sealed the premises of the Golden Tulip hotel, owned by Kenneth Gbagi, a former Minister of State for Education.

The hotel, located at Effurun, in Uvwie Local Government Area of Delta state, owes Value Added Tax totalling N15.6m incurred between 2014 and 2016.
Anita Erinne, who led the FIRS enforcement team, showed the hotel officials a distraint warrant before ordering the premises sealed until the debt is paid. Effort by Gbagi to plead that the hotel should not be sealed was rebuffed by the FIRS officials.
Similarly, the FIRS team sealed Kevwe Construction Company, Okwokoko, for unremitted VAT, totalling N84.4m.
However, Ishaka Hotels and Tebelos Hotels also in Delta State wrote an undertaken to pay their tax debt, a wish the tax enforcers granted them.
