N2.5TR CONSUMER CREDIT, N17M MAINTENANCE, N30M RANSOM

The fear of decreased consumer spending is another issue. Citizens are realising cash is key in times like this and are withholding it due to their uncertainties about what lies ahead. This gives the government a few transactions to tax. The small and medium scale businesses are practically shut down and cannot generate money. Thus, cannot pay taxes from zero profit. [DATAPHYTE]
