Insight on the Topic of Delta Online Publishers Forum’s 4th Lecture Series


The Delta Online Publishers Forum (DOPF) is set to host its highly anticipated annual convention and lecture series on Wednesday, November 22, 2023 at Golden Tulip Hotel, Asaba.

With the theme for the 4th series, “Fiscal Policy and Taxation – Balancing Revenue Generation and Economic Growth”, the forum aims to delve into the intricate relationship between revenue generation strategies and sustainable economic development.

In a statement jointly signed by the Chairman, Emmanuel Enebeli and Secretary, Shedrack Onitsha, the organizers highlighted the critical relevance of the chosen topic, especially in the current landscape where governments continually seek to bolster revenue streams while struggling to communicate the rationale behind increased taxation vis-à-vis tangible economic growth.

“The topic is very germane, especially with the present conditions where the governments of the day are daily exploring avenues to increase revenue to meet up with development plans, but still, the people find it difficult to understand reasons for the drive for an increase in taxation but little in the areas of economic growth,” stated the organizers.

The keynote speaker for the event is esteemed tax expert, Dr. Mrs. Doris Amaka Ochei, whose insights promise to shed light on the complexities of taxation and its correlation with economic progress. The occasion will be chaired by a distinguished chief and academician, adding prestige to the discourse.
