Afe Babalola: Customs violating tax exemption for medical equipment importation
Afe Babalola, a legal scholar, claims that burdensome bureaucracy have significantly hampered Nigeria's progress in scientific research and other fields of innovation.

Babalola voiced concern that the Nigeria Customs Service is refusing to grant tax breaks for the importation of medical equipment during this year's Drug Discovery Africa Conference, which was held at Afe Babalola University in Ado, the capital of Ekiti State.

The legal icon is also upset that a COVID-19 herbal cure created by ABUAD at the height of the epidemic is still awaiting efficacy testing by the Federal Government. He describes this as a sign that the nation is not encouraging of advancements and discoveries.
