Ahmad quoted Executive Chairman, FIRS, Mr Muhammad Nami as saying “the extension is a follow up to a number of palliative measures devised by the service to cushion the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Nigerian economy and to support tax-paying individuals and business entities in the country.
