“We are grateful to the media, and most especially the Leadership Newspaper for finding us worthy of this honour.
“Permit me to dedicate this Award to the FIRS family, and rename it as ‘the Leadership Public Institution of the Year Award 2022’—not Muhammad Nami’s. This Award is the result of a collective effort. It is because of teamwork that we have been able to achieve what we have done at the FIRS.”
The FIRS boss stated that the Award was a recognition of the reforms that the Service had carried out and their consequent results.
According to Nami, upon resumption in office as boss of the service, tax payments came from region of the country which it dismantled and crossed over N6 trillion in revenue.
Speaking on the prospects for the year 2023, Nami stated that the FIRS would do everything within its means to ensure that government does not lack the needed resources to cater for the needs of the Nigerian people.
“We have already commenced the journey to do better, well before the new year. We have appointed telecommunication companies and deposit money banks to act as agents of VAT collection for us. They would deduct VAT at source from their Contractors and, or Service providers, and remit the same to us.
“Also, we are extending our collaboration further, beyond local stakeholders and engaging with the international community to ensure that we have a seamless flow of information required for tax administration.
“We would also work tirelessly to ensure that we improve our automation so that we are able to serve our taxpayers better than previous years.”
