Garba stated this at a briefing in Abuja, noting that there was the need for customers to update their information as the Commission is considering an amnesty for certain number of years on yearly return filings, even though the details have not been worked out.
Speaking on the purported threat by workers of the Commission to embark on strike following disagreement with the management, the CAC boss said the union that issued the strike is no longer in existence, hence, cannot carry out such an action.
“AUPCTRE is no longer recognised as a senior staff union in CAC because of the decision of the National Industrial Court that declares AUPCTRE a junior staff union,’’ he said.
A copy of the judgment has been made available to us and there is no stay of execution on the judgment. To that effect AUPCTRE stopped existing in CAC. It has been dissolved.
“Staff of the Commission have been advised to join any organised union of senior staff of their choice. All union dues deductions from staff salaries have been stopped.”
He, however, warned that the CAC management will not tolerate disruption of the Commission activities by any group of person under the guise of strike.
