According to Nigerian Tribune, the Chairman noted that for FIRS to seek an amendment, it is a clear indication that they are aware of the law and should rather follow the law than seek an amendment.

He said, “You can only collect VAT on behalf of the states and hand their money over to them. You can only take a percentage there for helping us to collect the money”.
