Kaduna State Governor Appoints Former FIRS Boss As Consultant
Nasir El-Rufai, the Kaduna state governor on Wednesday appointed a former chairperson of the Federal Inland Revenue Service, Ifueko Omoigui, as a consultant to the newly restructured Kaduna State Internal Revenue Service (KADIRS).
A statement by Mr. El-Rufai’s spokesperson, Samuel Aruwan, said Mrs. Omoigui will help the state to deliver a strategic model and a people oriented framework for KADIRS.
“In 2015, governor El-Rufai invited Mrs. Omoigui to chair a committee set up to review the tax and revenue arrangements in the State.
“The report of that committee informed the decision of the Kaduna State Government to enact a new tax law and to restructure the KADIRS.
“The consultants are expected to design, produce and implant a service-oriented corporate and field operations structure, assign job descriptions, define competencies and a new remuneration structure for staff of the agency.” Mr Mr. Aruwan said.
Welcoming the appointment, Mukhtar Ahmed, acting chairman of the KADIRS, said that the revenue agency will benefit from the professionalism and experience of Mrs. Omogui.
