The
attention of the Executive Chairman, Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS), Mr.
Muhammad Nami and the Management of the Service has been drawn to the fake news
making the rounds on Social Media that a member of staff at the FIRS has tested
positive to COVID-19.

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.

The Service
can confirm that a member of staff who went to pick his wife from the airport
following her return from a trip abroad is currently and voluntarily observing
the Federal Government advisory of self-isolation alongside his spouse at the
couple’s home since Monday.

Both husband
and wife have not visited any FIRS offices or events since the wife retuned to
Nigeria last Sunday.

More
importantly, both husband and wife have only been in self-isolation for five
days and have NOT tested positive to Covid-19.

Before now,
all FIRS offices have taken necessary precautions to protect both Staff and our
esteemed taxpayers from Covid-19 through such safety measures as social
distancing, temperature testing, disabling of the biometric sign in, and
provision of hand sanitizers for staff and visitors to our offices nationwide
as advised by the Federal Ministry of Health.

Members of
the public are therefore advised to discountenance the claim that an FIRS
official has tested positive to Covid-19.
