Officials of the Lagos Internal Revenue Service and its counterpart in Ogun State have shown interest that they wanted a slice of tax from the winner of the 2020 Big Brother Nigeria reality TV show, Olamilekan Agbeleshebioba.
Officials of the agencies had tacitly communicated this in their congratulatory messages to the 26-year-old Ogun State born winner.
The Lagos Internal Revenue Service had tweeted in its own message:
“Congratulations @itsLaycon winner @BBNaija Lockdown edition. More wins!! We look forward to seeing you in Y2021 as you #payyourtax.”
Ogun State Internal Revenue Service would however not be left out, as it also sent out its own not too long after:
“The Ogun State Internal Revenue Service is delighted to congratulate one of our own in the State, Olamilekan Agbelesebioba, AKA @itsLaycon for emerging winner of @BBNaija Lockdown. We look forward to having a robust relationship with you in year 2021 as you pay your tax,” it tweeted.
Recall that the state governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, had earlier described Laycon as a pacesetter, as he represented everything good about the Nigerian and African youth.
Laycon got a mouth-watering N85m for winning this year’s edition, which was splitted into N30m in cash and other incentives valued at N55m.
These include an all-expense-paid trip to Dubai for two, a two-bedroom apartment, a Sport Utility Vehicle from Innoson Motors, a Scanfrost electronic makeover, one year supply of Pepsi Cola, one year supply of Munch It and Indomie noodles, and VIP tickets to watch the European Champions League final.
