Nami shakes FIRS

Executive Chairman of the Federal Inland Revenue Service, Mohammed Nami has approved the retirement of all directors that have served up to eight years.

It also approved the appointment of four coordinating directors and two group leads in an acting capacity.

About 50 directors, deputy directors, assistant directors and over 100 other staff were also transferred by the executive chairman.

While some of the directors were said to have moved up in relevance and ranking, one senior management staff got a boot from the agency. A new director also joined the service.

The Director, Communications and Liaison Department, Abdullahi Ahmad said the move is part of ongoing-internal reforms to reposition the Service towards achieving its N8.5 trillion tax target.

“The FIRS Board took this decision at its emergency meeting held on Friday, March 20 during which it approved the retirement of all directors who have served for eight years and above as directors in the Service, in line with Para 10.1(a)(iii) of Human Resources Policy and Programmes of the FIRS Statute,” he explained.

Ahmad said the move is part of ongoing-internal reforms to reposition the agency towards achieving its N8.5tn tax target.
