The Joint Tax Board (JTB) has urged its members of staff to effectively collaborate with relevant agencies to positively project the image of the board.

The Secretary of the JTB, Mr Olusegun Adesokan, made this call at a Strategic Retreat organised by the board in Abuja.

The theme of the retreat is: “Encouraging a Culture of Collaboration, Innovation and Adaptation to Respond to Emerging Challenges while Positively Projecting the Image of the JTB.’’

He said that the theme provided the underlying inspiration behind the various topics, adding that the outcome of the exercise would meet the objectives and goals earmarked for it.

According to him, it is essential for the JTB secretariat staff to imbibe the culture of collaboration and innovation to enable them to fully understand their roles under the emerging dispensation.

“The dynamics of our domestic tax ecosystem is currently being influenced by ongoing reforms.

“At this critical point, it is imperative that the JTB, given its crucial role in the nation’s tax administration landscape, is positioned to fully utilise the opportunities that will present themselves.

“We look forward to an engaging and inspiring session that will motivate the staff of the JTB to be the drivers of positive change.

“The board will hold that banner of a sustainable, inclusive and friendly tax environment in the country,” he said.

The former Chairman of the board, Mrs Ifueko Okauru, said that strong collaboration was vital towards strengthening and achieving the goal of the board.

Okauru urged the members of staff to ensure strong communication, adding that such communication would support the board to build a stronger trust to enhance service delivery.
