We raked in N12.3trn in 2023 — FIRS


The Federal Inland Revenue Service, FIRS, said it recorded unprecedented progress in revenue collection, culminating in a remarkable achievement of N12.3 trillion in 2023.

The FIRS Chief Executive, Zacch Adedeji, said this on Friday at the FIRS special day at the ongoing 35th Enugu International Trade Fair.

Adedeji, who was represented by a staff of the organisation, Mrs Aisha Ribadu, said the success was a testament to its dedication to nurturing and empowering its workforce and to ensuring they possessed the skills, knowledge and tools necessary to excel.

He expressed his heartfelt appreciation to the Enugu State Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture, ECCIMA, for its discerning choice of theme, “Promoting Made-in-Nigeria Products for Global Competitiveness.”

The FIRS boss added that the choice of theme reflected the collective aspiration to not only dominate the African market but to assert relevance on the global stage.

“Investing in human capital is the cornerstone of sustainable development, and nations that prioritise human development inevitably experience enduring growth and prosperity,” he said.
