The Federal Inland Revenue Service has tendered an apology to the Christian Association of Nigeria and Nigerians over an Easter message regarded as offensive.

Recall that a flier shared via its X account on Sunday reads, “Jesus paid your debts, not your taxes.”

However, reacting to the FIRS’s Easter post, CAN, the Christian body, demanded a public apology, noting that the message was offensive to the Christian faith.

This post also elicited reactions from Nigerians.

Meanwhile, on Tuesday, Dare Adekambi, Special Adviser on Media to the FIRS Chairman, Zacch Adedeji said its intention was not to denigrate the message of Easter but to engage taxpayers and remind them of their civic duty.
