Osun State Government Shuts Down OAU Over Non Payment Of Tax

The Osun State Internal Revenue Service has closed down Obafemi Awolowo University ( OAU) Ile-Ife, over an alleged non-payment of tax to the tune of N1.8bn.

The officials of IRS, led by Mr Oladipo Babatunde arrived the campus at exactly 7:00am, and went straight to lock the main entrance to the campus, popularly called Road 1, and the gate to the Senate Building, including the administrative block and the bursary office.

the Public Relations Officer(PRO) of the school, Mr Abiodun Olanrewaju said officials of the tax office had locked the main gate to the campus and other offices.
He said the University was already discussing with the Osun State Government to see how the issue could be resolved.

“We just discovered that tax officials have locked our main entrance gate and the administrative block.
“We are already speaking with Osun State government , and hope to resolve it soonest,” Olanrewaju said.
the state government had earlier issued a seven-day ultimatum to private and public organisations who have outstanding tax to upset.
the authorities of Obafemi Awolowo University Ile Ife have allegedly removed the seals of Osun internal revenue service placed on the main entrance of the institution and other parts of the university.
The Special Adviser on tax and Revenue Matters, Barrister Jimoh Olugbenga Akano in his reaction has described the act as criminal, saying the state Government will deal decisively with whoever that is found to be defiant.
