The lingering debate over value-added-tax (VAT) dominated the headlines of Nigerian newspapers.

The Nigerian Tribune’s major headline focuses on the divergent opinions emanating from the VAT controversy. The newspaper says fleeing bandits met their waterloo in a military camp in Niger state.

Daily Independent reports that analysts have argued that banks may not fare well with the Central Bank of Nigeria’s (CBN) proposed digital currency known as e-naira. The newspaper says a lack of consensus in the All Progressives Congress (APC) is delaying the party’s national convention.

The Punch says five northern states and two states each from the south-south and south-west regions are among the top beneficiaries of VAT sharing in 14 months. The newspaper reports that resident doctors remained adamant on strike despite meeting with the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA).

The Nation reports that the presidency says President Muhammadu Buhari will respect court judgment on the collection of VAT. The newspaper says Tanko Muhammad, chief justice of Nigeria (CJN), has ordered a disciplinary action against the Abuja judge who issued criminal summons against Charles Soludo, former CBN governor.

The Guardian says 100 days after Twitter ban, uncertainty is trailing the federal government’s plan on the microblogging platform. The Middle Belt Forum (MBF) has asked the federal government to name the sponsors of terrorism in the country, the newspaper reports.
