The Federal Government of Nigeria has issued an apology for “misleading” information on self-certification forms shared via its official Twitter handle on Thursday.

FG in tweets (now deleted) ordered Nigerians with accounts across financial institutions to obtain, complete and submit Self – Certification Forms to their respective financial institutions.

However, following the controversy generated by the directive, the Federal Government apologised for the earlier information.

It explained that the filing of Self-Certification forms “does not apply to everybody” according to a notice by the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS).

We apologize for the misleading tweets (now deleted) that went up yesterday, regarding the completion of self-certification forms by Reportable Persons.
