Cyber Security Levy: Barbaric, Unwarranted Disturbance, Thorn Ón The Flesh And A Monumental Violation Of Human Right!

By Justin N. Onwujiogu

The recently suspended order for implementation of Cyber security levy is a good omen.

Cyber security levy is barbaric, devilish, a clog in the will of economic growth and progress of the Nation and a monumental violation of the fundamental human right of the citizens, whether charged directly or indirectly on citizens. This is because whether such levy is charged directly or indirectly, it is still the poor masses that will be at the receiving end.

The implementation order of the  Act which is alleged to have been misinterpreted by the CBN, National Security Adviser and other stakeholders is an error committed perhaps in search of further means of generating fund for the Federal government and the office of the National Security Adviser, which has to the amazement of everyone suddenly become a revenue generator/collector for its office and or the federal government.

There is no gainsaying  that every right-thinking person views such policy as an excessiveness and recklessness on the part of the promoters with an intention to dubiously enrich themselves, their offices and those working therein to the detriment of the already suffering masses by scooping from the hard-built financial barn of the poor masses.

Such is nothing but a clear representation of multiple standard of taxation, an unwarranted burden, threat, disturbance to the already suffering poor masses and a monumental and flagrant violation of their fundamental human right.

The Federal government and the office of National Security Adviser in particular should seek other appropriate and legitimate means of generating fund for themselves and stop disturbing and threatening the lives of  citizens with unreasonable levies.

When has it become a crime for a citizen to pay for what he or she buys or services used or needed; or transfer money from one bank account to another for one genuine purpose or another?

When you employ wrong people and put them in offices as your Advisers, the consequence is what we are seeing now.

Thank God for the good people of Nigeria that rose up and stood against that mischievous attempt to further impoverish the already suffering masses!

Democracy is gradually working. By God’s grace we will surely get it right.
