They urged Mr. Sanwo-Olu to also look at how payment of tax can be made friendlier in Lagos for them adding that the Lagos Internal Revenue Service often charges them arbitrary taxes because of their celebrity status using best of judgment.

Prince Kosoko specifically pleaded with Mr. Sanwo-Olu to appoint one of them into a senior position in his government.
