The Armed Forces play a crucial role in fulfilling the mandate of FIRS, according to the Chairman

Date:

The Executive Chairman of the Federal Inland Revenue Service, Zacch Adedeji, emphasized the critical role of the country’s Armed Forces in achieving its revenue-collection goals.

Adedeji highlighted the symbiotic relationship between the FIRS and the Armed Forces, emphasizing that without the security provided by the military, businesses wouldn’t thrive, hindering revenue collection.

He acknowledged the importance of a secure environment for prosperity, linking security to profitability and subsequently taxation.

Adedeji also underscored President Bola Tinubu’s prioritization of the welfare of Armed Forces members, recognizing that security is paramount for both prosperity and revenue generation.

The Chief of Defence Staff, General Christopher Musa, pledged support for FIRS operations, recognizing its crucial role in benefiting Nigeria.

The FIRS recently surpassed its 2023 revenue target, reflecting a notable 107% performance over the set goal, and has set an ambitious target for the current year.
