Fraud: FG suspends 2 senior tax officials (SUN)

The Minister of Finance, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun, on Sunday announced the suspension of two senior tax officials in Delta and Benue states in the ministry’s efforts to sanitise the tax administration and revenue collection system in the country.
The minister made the disclosure in Abuja while presiding over the meeting of the Whistleblower Unit in the Federal Ministry of Finance and the Presidential Initiative on Continuous Audit (PICA).
