A civil society group, Civil Society Network Against Corruption (CSNAC), has written a petition to the Head of Service of the Federation seeking a comprehensive probe into purported recruitment exercise carried out the Federal Internal Revenue Service (FIRS).

The group’s Chairman, Mr.Olanrewaju Suraju stated in the petition that the recruitment should be investigated to truly establish if it was carried out in line with established rules and regulations, adding that appropriate punishment should be mete out to any individual found culpable in the scandal.

Relying on an online publication, the group stated that the probe would unearth whether the process leading to the employment of the affected staff followed due process having been discovered that accusers of the chairman of the FIRS, Mr. Babatunde Fowler could not make the charge stick, as he claimed those hired are not full-time employees but consultants.
