The Senate on Tuesday approved the nomination of Mr Zaccheus Adedeji as Chairman of the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS).


Appearing at the upper chamber for his screening on Tuesday, Adedeji revealed his plans to improve the nation’s revenue, referring to the dearth of information in the oil and gas sector.


He promised that most of the leakages would be halted. According to him, the core problem in the country is that of proper data, adding that developing data upon which decisions will be made is fundamental.


According to him, it will enable sufficient info on the exact number of vessels of crude brought into the county and the concomitant tax. The data would be used to identify those in affluence who pay insufficient tax, the FIRS boss added.


Adedeji also vowed to centralize the identification system in Nigeria and advance the nation’s data mining capacity.
