President Muhammadu Buhari has failed to reappoint Tunde Fowler as the chairman of the Federal Inland Revenue Service.
Fowler, a childhood friend of Vice President Prof Yemi Osinbajo, was appointed FIRS chair in 2015 with his tenure ending Monday, 09 December 2019. His dream if any for a second term permissible by law has however been cut short by President Buhari, who has named Mr. Muhammad M. Nami as his replacement.
“Mr. Muhammad, a well-trained tax, accounting and management professional with highly rated qualifications and professional practice and licenses from relevant professional bodies, has almost three decades of practical work experience in Auditing, Tax Management and Advisory and Management services to clients in the banking, manufacturing, services and public sectors as well as non-profit organisations,” the Presidency said in statement by spokesperson, Garba Shehu.
