Senate Panel Summons Accountant-General Over TSA Remittances

The Senate Committee on Finance on Wednesday summoned the Accountant-General of the Federation, Ahmed Idris, to appear before it over alleged inadequate remittances to the Single Treasury Account.

The Chairman of the Senate panel, Senator Solomon Adeola, disclosed this while addressing journalists on his committee’s planned investigation into the alleged poor remittances of the ministries, departments and agencies of government to the TSA.

Adeola said there was no record that the accountant-general had carried out a comprehensive reconciliation of the TSA since its full implementation in 2015.

The senator said government should check leakages to prevent reoccurring yearly government deficit.
