Our staff who tested COVID-19 positive had no contact with our facilities, colleagues-FIRS

FIRS appoints directors to meet N8.5 trillion  tax target


The Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) has said that one of its staff who tested positive for the Coronavirus had no contact with any FIRS facility or his colleagues.

In a statement signed by the Service director of communication, Abdullah Ismaila Ahmad, the FIRS said the patients turned himself over to the authorities on arrival from a foreign trip for quarantine.

The statement read in parts ”We can confirm that  a Member of Staff of the Service – in a voluntary waive  of patient confidentiality accorded all patients by care-givers globally – on Monday March 23, 2020 at about noon took to the micro-blogging platform, twitter, to announce his COVID-19 status, which was thereafter picked up and reported by the media.

“The member of staff suspected that he may have picked up Covid-19 while sharing a flight with the child of a prominent, politically-exposed person whose Covid-19 status has also been widely reported by the media.

“Management hereby wish to inform the public that the Member of Staff was in voluntary self-isolation after alighting from the aforesaid flight and did not therefore visit any FIRS facilities or have further contact with any of his colleagues. He developed symptoms of COVID-19 at home and in self-isolation from where he was evacuated promptly by the NCDC.

“The NCDC had closely monitored his situation in self-isolation as he had voluntarily contacted the NCDC since that federal agency has been urging patriotic Nigerians to do so under the current circumstance.

“Management is in constant touch with the Member of Staff in question at the Gwagwalada facility where the hard-working health care givers are attending to all confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the Federal Capital Territory.
“To be sure, this confirmation is unrelated to the fake news earlier circulated by some unguarded media platform about a false case of Covid-19 at the FIRS Office in Abuja last weekend.

“We hasten to add that before this development, the FIRS Management had put up precautionary measures to protect members of staff, taxpayers and other visitors to all FIRS facilities nationwide from COVID-19 in line with federal advisory as put out by the NCDC and the  Federal Ministry of Health.

“These preventive measures against COVID-19 are still in operation in all FIRS offices nationwide.

“The FIRS Management has also sent out a Covid-19 Protocol to all taxpayers in the country on our database informing them of the health and safety measures we have put up in our offices to keep them safe as they visit the FIRS for tax-related matters.

“The Management and Board of the FIRS will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and abide by the federal, state and local authorities’ instructions on COVID-19.

“Be rest assured that we will constantly update you on developments that may affect your well-being and the Service”.

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind me asking what theme you’re using?
    (and don’t mind if I steal it? :P)

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the theme slows (!) the site down quite
    a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback) – it’s still
    in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself during
    the coronavirus scare!
