Sierra Leone’s National Revenue Authority (NRA) has today ordered all their managers, supervisors and officers to submit their academic certificates with a personal file.

The order came amid allegations of some government officials acquiring fake degrees from fake tertiary institutions to hold top positions.

The notice from the NRA commissioner states that; β€œWe write further to our memo on the 25th January 2021 on the above mentioned subject and to request that you submit all your academic certificate/s through the office of the Commissioner-General for the attention of the Director, HRD on or before close of business on the 20th April 2022. Thank you very much for your cooperation.”
