After security, there’s probably nothing more important in national development and sustained economic advancement of any nation than education and taxes.

For while good quality education helps shape young minds towards innovation, invention, discovery and conquering nature for human advancement, taxes actualise this process.

Taxes are not only instituted to enable governments to generate revenue to pay its recurrent and development bills, but to also encourage business, risk-taking, industry, job creation and entrepreneurship.

In other words, good taxation can spur business, ingenuity, development and industry while bad taxation can cripple.
