Tinubu Demands Sales of Floppy Assets

According to Taiwo Oyedele, the chairman of the Presidential Committee on Fiscal Policy and Tax Reforms, Nigeria may easily earn N10 trillion a year by managing its non-oil assets well.

This results from the Presidential tax panel demanding the sale of floppy assets in the state.

At a stakeholders’ event held in Lagos on Thursday night, Oyedele gave a speech at the Harvard Business School Association of Nigeria. He emphasized the necessity of better asset management and the possible advantages of liquidating underperforming assets to create cash and promote economic expansion.

Tinubu is mostly known for his tax collection as Lagos State governor. However, the decision to sell underperforming assets is a move to sell non-oil assets since crude oil remains the government’s major source of revenue. Nonetheless, non-oil asset sales are inextricably a tax reform policy, though yet to be made a new regulation. At its adoption, it aims to bolster economic growth and the burden of tax regulation on businesses in Nigeria.

During the speech, Oyedele highlighted the need for improved asset management and the potential benefits of selling underperforming assets to generate liquidity and stimulate economic growth.

He said, “Imagine that you become more efficient with an N100tn asset alone. Even if you get a return of 10 percent yearly, that’s easily N10tn. If you cannot manage the asset well, then sell it and get liquidity in.”

Speaking of liquidity, the problem with economic improvement surrounds maintenance policies. Accumulating non-oil assets into liquidity requires adequate policies that efficiently utilise incomes generated by selling off underperforming assets.
