Today, NGF is hosting its first Technology & Tax Event. This would be the first technology-focused event organised among our portfolio of events aimed at supporting a learning ecosystem for tax administrations in Nigeria. Today’s event is organised in partnership with the World Bank and the International Centre for Tax and Development. Both partners we consider very strategic in bringing an international perspective to the work we do.
The goal for us is to help facilitate the scale up of modern, taxpayer-friendly, and technology-driven revenue administrations in all States of the federation that will be capable of providing world-class services; characterized by efficient, paperless operations, and equipped with ICT-enabled risk-based enforcement capable of optimising their revenue mobilization strategies.

"This would be the first technology-focused event organised among our portfolio of events aimed at supporting a learning ecosystem for tax administrations in Nigeria." - Director General, NGF Mr Asishana Okauru.
"There is a need to respond to tax payers and the government. We are pleased to have worked with the NGF and support them as they have grown. It has not been easy to make progress during COVID-19 but the expertise in this room makes it possible to create new approaches, engage in peer learning as we learn from each other" - Mr Tijjani Mohammed from Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
"A tax administration in the 21st century should use the new wave of technology to radically transform the tax services. The E-Services have to be expanded. There needs to be a widespread use of the E-platform. This means that digital by default, nothing but digital compliance. This means a high quality experience for tax payers with E-assessment, algorithm based and user-centric design" - Mr Shubham Chaudhuri, World Bank.
