These northerners keep believing that they are the only saints in Nigeria.

They always say such rubbish only when a southerner is the victim.
They will never say such rubbish against a fellow northerner no matter how bad and corrupt he is. Till today, Abacha never stole a dime,is still a hero to them!
Dasuki never languished in jail cos he was corrupt but cos of personal beef with the jihadist

They gave the southern bankers like Cecilia Ibru and Akingbola a bad name through that lanky don,Sanusi,and virtually destroyed them,even got them imprisoned.

Kemi Adeosun dealt with one of them for insurbordination and her gross error was dugnoit and she was subsequently dealt with and disgraced and replaced with a northerner.

Nkw they succeeded in removing Fowler.and didn't renew his tenure,a Mallam replaced him but they still don't want him to have peace.
The so called jagbajantis is just there like a lame duck while his people are being made scapegoats

Tunde Fowler wasn't such a brilliant revenue expert as the Thifnúbu's
Lagos media portrayed him.

Perhaps they deliberately overhyped him after all, he handed over revenue
collection in Lagos to Thiefnúbu's Alpha Beta.

He applied the same method of patronizing fake consultants at federal
level but it backfired

His records in all ramification beat all his predecessors.
The technique he used in dealing with tax defaulters is second to none which your people has never done before.
He is more educated and experienced more than any of your aboki brothers in charged before.
If not for the nonsense quota system in Nigeria that is downgrading competent Nigerians, do you think your aboki brothers stand a chance when competing with a brilliant southerner.

True Federal System is the only solution to Nigerian problems.

What is it with people always trying to discredit their predecessors when they assume office. It's a bad leadership trait and an excuse for failure
exactly. Blaming predecessor doesn't just cut it for a leadership role. Instead, work towards better performance to leave a greater legacy.

Sometimes i wonder if Mr Tinubu has no shame at all, he was part of the notorious gang member that scammed this country in 2015 with fake change propaganda. Now he is preparing for a come back to destroy what is left.

The Northerners are not been fair and it is a pity because we the southerners have been accommodating to their excesses especially the nepotism that is very clear even to the blind.
Mr. Nami is comparing Tax revenue collection for the years Fowler headed the FIRS to those of Jonathan forgetting that Buhari's unpreparedness and cluelessness hastened the economy to recession. Tax revenue is a function of the health of the economy.
From my own simple view, Mr. Nami was brought in knowing that the Government would increase VAT by 2.5% and they needed one of their own to take the glory when the tax revenue increases substantially but it isn't that simple as they thought because with advent of corona virus pandemic and sharp drop in crude price, the Nigerian economy could be headed for the second recession under the same leadership.
Mr. Buhari, Nigeria is for Nigerians and not for the Northerners exclusively and I can't wait for your clueless Northern administration to be over so we can have Southern presidential candidates to elect, I know the presidential contest will be fierce with well educated and visionary leaders that will make us forget your era quickly and only be referenced in history book as days of abject darkness.

Nami claims he met a broken FIRS bureaucracy. That is an allegation that will need some time and a lot more information (from both Fowler and Nami) to prove or disprove.

Some of Fowlers critics on this thread claim that he superintended over a decline in FIRS revenues - among other 'crimes'. Now those are allegations that can be tackled here and now - the information (some of it at least) is in the public domain.

Instead of ridiculing Nami's ethnicity, the key issues of performance (or lack of it) could have been settled - right here on this thread. Lost opportunity.

If all went according to how I read it, then Fowler is by far a better leader. He broadened the tax revenue platform by delving into several other sectors of tax collection, and he reduced corruption in the FIRS by appointing tax consultants instead of the regular staff in the organization. People will cry when they aren't able to steal from their usual spot.

^^^
I would like to be educated on how employing tax consultants reduced FIRS corruption. I genuinely would like to know the facts on this case.

Whenever any Aboki comes to power, they will always accuse their predecessors of financial crimes..just like Buhari is doing with Jonathan before he became very tired and lame.

Now see how this aboki is comparing himself with Fowler...since the histroy of Nigeria they will always accused southerners of one thing or the other yet they are the most corrupt humans in Nigeria. E.g Abacha,Babangida and even Buhari. These men are the reasons why Nigeria will hardly move forward.

Absolutely spot on.
Wickedfacts:
Look at this dunce that couldn't pass ICAN. Very crude fellow. His first duty as FIRS boss was to bash Fowler. After that, this Nami ran to Lagos to beg Sanwo-Olu to help him beg LIRS to cover for FIRS's incompetence.

Nami doesn't have ICAN. He's a blockhead who isn't mentally qualified for the post. Bring this fool to LIRS and see if he can function as ordinary Assistant Manager.

I guess you are referring to Buhari here.

The only problem you have is that he was popular enough across this country to win 2 terms - despite his unequivocal support of rogues and knaves. The question you should ask is why such a large number of people (across Northern and Southern Nigeria) supported him despite these shortcomings. Why?

Justiceleague1:

They gave the southern bankers like Cecilia Ibru and Akingbola a bad name through that lanky don,Sanusi,and virtually destroyed them,even got them imprisoned.

^^^
Those bankers, unfortunately broke the rules. They gave themselves a bad name - no one else did. What I will concede is that there wasn't fairness in that whole exercise - for example, there are big questions as to how Unity Bank escaped the axe - the rumour is that it was kept alive to satisfy 'certain' interests. But Oceanic Bank and Intercontinental Bank contravened CBN guidelines and their MDs broke the law. No two ways about it.

Justiceleague1:

Kemi Adeosun dealt with one of them for insurbordination and her gross error was dugnoit and she was subsequently dealt with and disgraced and replaced with a northerner

^^^
She presented a forged NYSC discharge certificate. She knew the people (and they cut across all regions of Nigeria, by the way) she was dealing with - they fight and they fight dirty. They outmaneuvered her and she lost out in the power struggle. She should never have tendered that forged certificate and she knows it.

compare with Fowler's.

What did Buhari tell you was his reason for sorrounding himself with certain ethnicity in appointments? Trust!


Who do you think Nami is going to put in place for consulting? You think he will bring Yoruba or Ibo to consult? It will be his own people.

Thats not a valid ground to critic Fowler.

That is the Nigerian style. Why blame Fowler for exercising what is traditional?
Pls don't miss understand me. I am not passing any blame on fowler. I am only saying my opinion on why fowler might have been removed.
Obviously the powers that be as you rightly said will definitely want their own person there and probably use their own "consultants".
Since they claim they are taking the proper route via using civil servant tax officials and not consultants, any diviation ie using new consultants will surely raise eyebrows.
