Lagos State Government has given Actress Iyabo Ojo a 7-day-ultimatum to pay the total sum of N18,640,092.00 she reportedly owes to the State's treasury in personal income tax.

Personal Income Tax is a direct tax charged on the income of a person. In this context, a person means Individuals, Corporate sole or body of individuals, Communities, Families, and Trustees or Executors of any settlement.

According to a flying document, Iyabo Ojo was said to have a tax liability of N7,376,000.00 for the year 2022 and an outstanding liability of N11,264,092 for the 2021 income year.

The amount of money and the time given for Iyabo Ojo to remit her tax to the state has however generated mixed reactions from concerned citizens, online.

While some citizens condemn Iyabo Ojo for inflicting hardship on herself due to an alleged 'Fake life', many of the citizens in support tagged the tax demand as a 'political witch-hunt'.

Some of the reactions by the citizens read:

Irunnia: It’s very obvious that this is a political witch hunt because she didn’t support Tinubu’s presidential ambition.

Only 7 days to pay Tax of 18 million Naira because she’s Dangote’s wife? How many of our big celebrities can even cough out that amount in this current economy?

Daniel Regha: The APC govt wants to frustrate Iyabo Ojo cos she's anti-APC; Asking her to pay about N18.7m within a week is pathetic. Are other celebs who campaigned for Tinubu & the APC being asked to do the same? The govt claims to hold no grudges but goes after those who worked against 'em.

Pastor Okezie Atani: Iyabo Ojo won't try this in SANER CLIME. Nobody evades TAX in SANER but in Nigeria. It's a normal thing or gov't witch-hunt.

Make una rest.

Remember, you all think she will just clear it like that. She will still go through the processes of clearing it o.

Osaghae: She nor suppose to pay before, tomorrow you will say you want a better Nigeria. You are making money here and you don't want to pay tax, can she try it overseas she preaches so much about it.

Obi Christopher: Why is Iyabo lamenting on social media she should go to court to address the issue or challenge internal revenue over her tax issues, she can only get glorification on social media but not a solution, dear Iyabo go and pay your tax and stop making excuses

Peace Egbeje: So you all think the government taxing her because of her cloth? No. She has a business on the island and she must have filled out a personal income form as the CEO. They perhaps overlook this tax, but many business owners don't pay it. So unfortunate for Iyabo government opens a book of remembrance towards her today😁🤣. Why do they do it? I don't know and I really don't care. If truly she is owing, she should pay as a responsible citizen benefiting from the infrastructure of Lagos state.

Many citizens who blamed Iyabo Ojo for her fake life insisted that if she could afford to wear a 35 million naira dress during the African Magic Viewers Awards 2023, a tax clearance of N18.6 million should not be much for her.

However, against the objections that Iyabo Ojo's tax clearance was a political witch-hunting, it could be recalled that in 2019 she also cried out when the Lagos State government called on her to clear her N36 million tax deficit.
