In a short tweet made by the Government on Friday 19, September 2020, they tender an apology for the misinformation.
It tweeted, “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.”
Kemi Filani News recalls that Buhari-led government had on Thursday via Twitter ordered all Nigerians with account in any financial institution to obtain, complete and submit Self–Certification Forms and failure to adhere to this instruction will attract sanctions, which may include monetary penalty or inability to operate the account.
