FIRS Recruitment In Progress



I am but your herald boy in the art of the pen.. An eccentric Environmental Biologist smouldered in the glorious epiphany of online journalism. If you ever find my article unduly insipid, sue me and i’ll refund you...


  1. Federal Inland Revenue Service recruitment should favor all ethnic, there should be no bias, it should be fair in shortlisting the candidate.

  2. I hope the COMMON MAN will be given chance for selection. This is because Senators, Reps, Governors, Ministers, Generals, etcetera are the ones normally filling the vacancies using their positions. Funny enough, they gave their children and sibling the positions without duly qualifying for such.

  3. It’s a pleasure and a thing of joy that FIRS is recruiting now. I pray may there be genuine standard in the shortlisting process so that all applicants may have one reason to appreciate this government.

  4. good day.please can we be informed about when the list will be out? thank you so much… your reply will be highly favored

  5. my name is okonji victoria chiedu ….. .when the shortlisted names are out please let me know…..
