Having seen Nigerians reactions therein, the government in a riposte retracted its statement and deleted its earlier tweet.

Apologizing to Nigerians, FG said: “We apologize 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 FIRS Nigeria.


Notice does not apply to everybody. FIRS will issue appropriate clarification shortly”.
