The federal government, through the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation (OAGF), is set to deploy directors of Revenue to ten Federal Government Owned Enterprises (FGOEs) in the pilot phase of the exercise.
The FGOEs to which the directors of Revenue will be deployed in this first phase include, the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA).
Others are the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS), Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), Department of Petroleum Resource (DPR), Nigerian Shippers’ Council (NSC) and Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN).
A statement issued by the director, Information, Press and Public Relations in the OAGF, Henshaw Ogubike, he said the full implementation of the pilot phase of deployment of the directors of Revenue to the FGOEs was approved earlier in the year by the minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Shamsuna Ahmed.
At an orientation programme for the directors of Revenue in Abuja on Tuesday, the minister said the initiative was in compliance with the Presidential approval that was conveyed through Secretary to the Government of the Federation’s (SGF’s) circular, with reference number SGF.50/S.3/C.9/24 of 16th October, 2018, on the approved Revenue Performance Management Framework for Government Owned Enterprises (FGOEs).
