The Ondo State Chief Judge, Justice Olasehinde Kumuyi, and the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA)have agreed on the need to stop the implementation of the tax circular.

This is coming two months after lawyers started boycotting courts over the circular.

The circular insisted on production of tax clearance as a compulsory pre-condition for bail of accused persons standing trial.

The decision was reached at the end of the meeting called by the CJ at Judges’ Recreation Centre, Alagbaka, Akure with leaders of the NBA in the state.

Members of the Bar also agreed to suspend the two months old boycott of Courts.
