The resolutions of southern governors on the collection of value-added-tax (VAT) and the legal tussle over VAT dominated the headlines of Nigerian newspapers.

Daily Independent reports that southern governors have backed the collection of value-added-tax (VAT) by states. The newspaper says the appeal court refused to stop the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) from collecting VAT.

The Nation reports that Lagos and Rivers have asked the court to stop FIRS from collecting VAT pending the determination of the suit challenging the legality of its action. The newspaper says the Nigerian Air Force is set to probe the “accidental” killing of nine people in Yobe by a jet fighter.

The Punch says Kano-Niger Republic rail line is among the projects to be executed with the $4.9 billion fresh loan request of President Muhammadu Buhari. The newspaper reports that 12 soldiers were killed and three gun trucks seized in Borno terror ambush.

Daily Sun reports that southern governors have united on the collection on VAT as well as on the 2023 presidency slot for the region. The newspaper says the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra has set up a committee to punish those enforcing sit-at-home order in the south-east region.

The Guardian reports that Femi Fani-Kayode said the All Progressives Congress (APC) he had criticised some years ago is different from the present APC. The newspaper says the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Ali Ndume, senator representing Borno south, have kicked against Buhari’s fresh loan request.
