Chairman, Federal Inland Revenue Service, Tunde Fowler, has told a House of Representatives Committee on Public Petition that only 500 out of the 700,000 applicants who applied for job in the organization will be taken.
He stated that more than 2,000 out of the 700,000 applicants who had first class degrees in various disciplines were qualified for the job. He added that the aim of the exercise was to boost manpower for tax revenue collection and widen the country’s revenue base.
Fowler said that the organization would ensure fairness and due process in the recruitment process.
“We have secured waiver and endorsement from the Federal Character Commission in order to ensure that the right thing is done”, he said.
