The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Job Creation and Youth Employment, Afolabi Imoukhuede, has announced that N-Power volunteers will be excluded from paying tax for two years as directed by President Buhari.
Imoukhuede said this in Awka on Saturday, during an interactive session with N-Power volunteers.
Imoukhuede re-iterated that President Buhari had included the N30,000 monthly stipend for motivation, excluded them from paying taxes for two years and offered them chance for two years’ experience being the minimum needed by employers for new intakes.
He however decried the poor English command of the teacher volunteers.
“One of the reasons you are posted by virtue of your places of residence is for you to add value to your immediate community where your children may also be schooling.
“In doing so, if you sow good seeds, you reap good harvest but if you don’t you may end up destroying the future of the children which is not the intention of this scheme.”
“This is a call to duty for the supervisors, especially for those in the primary schools”, Imoukhuede.
