Chairman Lagos Internal Revenue Service (LIRS), Mr. Tunde Fowler says he has not resigned against reports in the media. Fowler who was reported to have resigned told our correspondent via text messages that he has not resigned.
“I have not resigned my brother”, he said in a text message to our correspondent. Our correspondent received the message at about 11PM on Monday.
Fowler was appointed Chairman of the board when Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu was governor of Lagos State. He is a Christian.
He is credited with raising the revenue profile of Lagos State from a little bit below N1billion to N18 billion monthly in 2013. It was under his tenure that Alpha Beta, a tax audit agency allegedly owned by Tinubu consulted for LIRS until its services were terminated by the Babatunde Raji Fashola government.
