He expressed optimism that he’ll reform Nigeria’s tax system.

Nigeria President Bola Tinubu has rejoiced with the Executive Chairman of the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS), Dr. Zacch Adedeji, as he marks his 46th birthday on January 8.

The President, in a statement issued on Sunday by his Media Adviser, Ajuri Ngelale, expressed optimism that the FIRS boss will reform the nation’s tax system for the benefit of Nigerians. 

He also extolled the fine defining qualities of the young first-class graduate of accounting who steadily rose through the ranks in public service by dint of hard work, loyalty, and competence.

President Tinubu noted his service as the Commissioner of Finance in Oyo State at the age of 33; the CEO of the National Sugar Development Council (NSDC); Special Adviser to the President on Revenue, and now Chief Executive Officer of the nation’s apex tax authority.

According to him: “Zacch is an innovator who consistently turns his creative ideas into change-making actions. He is a disciple of the ‘think-and-do’ school of changemakers. He will reform Nigeria’s tax system for the benefit of Nigerians. Give him a task, and it will be done and done well,” the President states.

The President wished the FIRS Chairman more strength and zeal in the discharge of his duties.
