FG Apologises Over ‘Misleading Tweet’ Ordering Banks, Account Holders To Re-Register

42

The Federal Government has apologised for its tweet ordering all account holders in the country to obtain and fill self-certification forms and re-register.

In a directive contained in a series of tweets on Thursday, the Federal Government said each account holder must submit the filled forms in their respective financial institutions.

In another tweet on Friday morning, the Federal Government acknowledged that its earlier tweets were misleading.

“We apologise for the misleading tweets (now deleted) that went up yesterday, regarding the completion of self-certification forms by Reportable Persons. The message contained in the @firsNigeria Notice does not apply to everybody. FIRS will issue appropriate clarification shortly,” it tweeted.
