None of our staff tested positive for coronavirus —FIRS

FIRS boss reveals how multinationals cheat Nigeria of N3.7tn annually

The Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) said Saturday none of its staff tested positive for Coronavirus (COVID-19).

The FIRS said in a statement signed by its Director of Communications and Liaison Department, Abdullahi Ahmad that a member of staff, who went to pick his wife from the airport following her return from a trip abroad, had been on self-isolation alongside his spouse at their home since Monday.

The service insisted that the couple had not tested positive for COVID-19.

The FIRS said all its offices nationwide had before now taken necessary precautions to protect both staff and taxpayers from COVID-19.

The statement read: “The Service hereby states unequivocally that no member of staff at the FIRS has tested positive to COVID-19 as being peddled on Social Media.

“Members of the public are therefore advised to discountenance the claim that a FIRS official has tested positive FOR COVID-19.”
