Adeosun said FEC had also given a directive to contractors and those doing business with the government to ensure that names of company directors and registered offices are listed on their letter headed papers.

She said this is to enable tax authorities to be able trace and collect revenue.

Adeosun said the accountant general of the federation had been told not to pay companies that did not comply with the directive.

“FEC gave a directive to the SGF to remind companies that there is an existing provision in the law that companies are supposed to have on their letter headed papers the names of their directors and their registered offices but what we have seen is that many bodies that are transacting business with government simply have the names of the company and no details of who the directors are,” she said.
