CAN Demands Apology From FIRS Over Offensive Comments

CAN Demands Apology From FIRS Over Offensive Comments.

Christian Association of Nigeria has demanded a public apology from the Federal Inland Revenue Service over an Easter advert which the Christian body found offensive.

The FIRS, in an X (formerly Twitter) post had shared a picture of a Point of Sale machine with the caption, “Jesus paid your debts, not your taxes.”

The post had elicited reactions from Nigerians, particularly Christians, who condemned the post.

CAN’s National Director of National Issues and Social Welfare, Abimbola Ayuba, in a statement called on President Bola Tinubu, the Minister of Finance, Wale Edun, and the Department of State Services to take cognizance of the incident and guide the FIRS in adhering to only messages that promote unity and peace.

CAN said, as a nation that prides itself on religious harmony and peaceful coexistence, the group is deeply concerned by the recurrence of provocative messages around religious holidays, which should be the bastion of exemplary conduct, and is widely regarded as offensive and derogatory to the Christian faith.
