The executive chairman of the Lagos State Internal Revenue Service (LIRS), Mr Ayodele Subair, has attributed the successes recorded by the agency to the provision of funds by the state government, thanking Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu for supporting the organisation.

Mr Subair made this disclosure at the 11th edition of the Vanguard Personality of the Year Award held at the Eko Hotels and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.

“Without mobilisation of funds, there can’t be any meaningful development,” he said, expressing the company’s delight in contributing to Lagos State’s development and humanity.

At the event, the tax master was conferred with the 2022 Public Sector Icon of the year, and during his acceptance speech, he thanked “the chairman and management of Vanguard Newspapers” for the award.

“They’ve been the vanguard leading the way in developments and new ideas for many years. To be on top is not very easy. They are one of the best newspaper organisations in Nigeria. I say kudos to them,” he stated.

Mr Subair noted, “I feel very proud about our achievements at LIRS. It’s not just about me. It is about LIRS, the management, the directors, and the staff, including, most importantly, Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, for his immense support and encouragement. Also, the Lagos State House of Assembly, the Judiciary and all stakeholders have contributed to our success.”

The glamorous ceremony, chaired by Mrs Ajoritsedere Awosika, Chairman of Access Bank, is an annual event where eminent personalities who have distinguished themselves in professional excellence and service to humanity in the private and public sectors are honoured.

According to the event organiser, Vanguard Newspaper Limited, the LIRS boss was conferred with a special award in recognition of his magic wand in the Lagos state tax revolution during the last seven years of office.

Born on May 21, 1960, Mr Subair holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Economics from the Metropolitan University of Manchester, United Kingdom. He also holds a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of Lagos.

He is a fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN), member of both the Chartered Institute of Taxation of Nigeria (CITN), and the Business Recovery and Insolvency Practitioners Association of Nigeria (BRIPAN).
