Opinion: That 20% Tax On Imported Medicines

That 20% Tax On Imported Medicines
By Achilleus-Chud Uchegbu
Recently, the federal Government of Nigeria imposed a 20% tax on imported medicines in a new tax policy called Import Adjustment Tax. Prior to this, Nigeria had 0% duty on imported drugs. This is a consequence of an ECOWAS Committee on Health recommendation that member states charged 0% duty on imported drugs. This became necessary when ECOWAS reasoned that healthcare needs of the region cannot be adequately addressed by the available drugs manufacturing companies.

English Version: Official Transcript of the meeting between Muhammadu Buhari and Chancellor Angela Merkel



Chancellor Merkel: Dear Mr. Muhammadu Buhari! I am pleased to welcome you to Berlin today, after we met at the G7 summit in Elmau and I was in Nigeria a few years ago.

Just a few days ago, the German-Nigerian bi-national commission in Abuja, to which our Federal Foreign Minister had travelled, had also met as an expression of our close cooperation. We will continue the cooperation in the context of the G20 Summit, which will take place in Germany next year, and will return to what we have already emphasized in the context of G7, namely cooperation in the field of health and, of course, cooperation in the fight Against terrorism.
