Top Nollywood actor who doubles as the president of the Theatre Arts and Motion Picture Practitioners Association of Nigeria (TAMPPAN) Prince Dele Odule is charging his colleagues.
Odule appealed to his colleagues and other entertainers in Ibadan, Oyo State during the Central Working Committee and National Executive Council meeting of TAMPPAN on Thursday, January 14.
He charged them to be good citizens by assisting both the federal and state government in generating revenue by way of paying tax. He told them to pay their taxes in their respective states where they practice this he said will help the government of their respective state achieve their aims and goals of making Nigeria a better country.
Naij.com spoke with one of the national provost Marshall of the association Lamber Dike who said Odule urged the members of the association to pay their tax as they earn. He said: “The president urged us to be responsible Nigerians. He told us that each employer in a company pays tax so why not us.He asked everybody making a living through movies and entertainment to pay their income tax as they earn to the state government of the respective states you are practising.”
Meanwhile on January 12, 2016, an elder of TAMPPAN and former president of Association of Theatre Arts Practitioners Jide Kosoko celebrated his 62nd birthday.
