Puntland Minister of Finance Hassan Shire Abgal said school teachers were required to pay their taxes immediately.
He said school principals in Puntland who refuse to pay the required taxes are like Al-Shabaab.
Minister Hassan Abgal added that school principals also do not accept tax money when they are asked to create discord and let students go, saying illegal money is required, which he said will be prosecuted.
Finally, the Puntland Minister of Finance said that the people who oppose the tax are people who do not want the government, and are like Al-Shabaab.
The statement from Puntland Minister of Finance Hassan Shire Abgal comes at a time when school principals and transporters in Puntland have complained several times.
