The Executive Chairman of the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS), Muhammad Nami, says Nigeria is seeking stronger relationships with development partners to promote and improve tax administration.
This is contained in a statement issued by Mr. Johannes Wojuola, Special Assistant to the Executive Chairman on Media and Communication, and made available to Newsmen on Sunday.
Nami, who is also the President of the Commonwealth Association of Tax Administrators (CATA), on Friday visited the Capital Area Transportation Authority (CATA) Secretariat at the United Kingdom’s Treasury House for a meeting on tax administration.
The statement said that the CATA President and his team were briefed on the governance structure of CATA and the current efforts by the association to serve the common interest of member nations.
He promised to achieve the short and long term goals and objectives of the association before his three-year tenure ends.
Nami also held a bilateral meeting with Miss Antonia Strachey of the Public Finance and Tax Department, UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), on issues of mutual benefit to the revenue authorities of both countries.
It could be recalled that the FIRS boss was unanimously elected on October 12 by the 47 member countries of CATA at the association’s General Meeting as its 15th President.
