Chairman of the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS), Mr. Zacch Adedeji, has called for synergy between the agency and the Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in tracking and reporting local and trans-border financial transactions of companies, multinationals and high-net-worth individuals.

Adedeji made the call when he visited the chairman of the anti-graft agency, Mr. Ola Olukoyede at his office in Abuja on Wednesday.

A statement by the Special Adviser on Media to the FIRS Chairman, Dare Adekanmbi, quoted the chairman as saying the collaboration was necessary as socio-economic activities “Are speedily transcending from bricks-and-mortar to a digital and knowledge-driven economy.”

He solicited the commission’s support in terms of data sharing to enhance intelligence gathering and investigation, saying both agencies must coordinate to address specific challenges.

Reacting, Olukoyede thanked the FIRS chairman and called for a review of the memorandum of understanding between the two agencies concerning operations in units such as the tax fraud section and joint tax force.
