Nigerian Preachers should start paying Pentecost tax — VP Osinbajo speaks

Professor Yemi Osinbajo who is the Vice President of Nigeria has advised preachers in Nigeria to pay Pentecost Tax.


The Nation’s VP who is also a clergy man at Redeemed Christian Church of God spoke in Lagos on Friday during an event.

According to Yemi Osinbajo, persons who succeed in their endeavours owe society three forms of taxes. 


He explained further that the first is income taxes (personal income tax), and corporation tax for company owners.

The second, he noted, is a social tax or philanthropy, which is the obligation of the wealthy to give back to society. “The third tax is a civic tax; the obligation of the successful to write their stories, to share the histories of the phenomena they have become.
But for the successful preacher of the gospel of Jesus Christ, there is the fourth tax, this is the Pentecost Tax”, he said.
