CHAPTER ONE

1.0 INTRODUCTION

1.1 BACKGROUND OF STUDY

The banking sector of Nigeria is one of the major contributor to the growth and development in Nigeria; although there have been so many reforms and policies since 1952; most banks in Nigeria did not survive the experiences from such reforms and policies. The economics and financial status of most countries especially the developing nations depends on the level of stability in the banking industry; that’s to say that the performance of the banking sector has a significant effect on the economy of the nation.

Before the introduction of treasury single account in Nigeria, MDA which normally generates revenue have numerous accounts in commercial banks, they use part of the revenue generated to fund their various and operations and remit the excess to the federation of account.

Most of these agencies pay whatever they deem fit the federal government account; it is evident that most of these agencies or ministries are even richer than the government. The outcome of the above occurrences leads to financial leakages, the embezzlement of public funds; this made the federal government of Nigeria to prepare budget using false projection.

The commercial banks were the most beneficiaries of this situation; most banks depends on the public money deposited by ministries, at the end the federal government of Nigeria comes back to borrow the money with high interest rate.

Secondly banks no longer care to mobilize money from other sector of the Nigeria economy. The balances of account of the government with the commercial banks lay idle in the banks.

The above situation was what led to the introduction of the government treasury single account; on the 25th February, 2015, the president of Nigeria instructed that all the ministries should close their account with all the commercial banks in Nigeria, and transfer the various balances into federation account with the central bank of Nigeria.

This directive came to the central bank of Nigeria with the circular number BPS/CSO/CON/DIR/01/079, and address to all deposit money banks (DMB). The circular was entitled “Commencement of federal government's independent revenue e collection scheme under the single treasury account (TSA) initiative”.

According to IMF (2010) defines treasury single account as a unified structure of the government bank account that gives a consolidated view of government resources. Based on the principle stated and the unity of the government treasury single account, a treasury single account (TSA) is a bank account or a group of linked account through which government transact all its receipt and various payment.

According to Adeolum (2015) stated that “the maintenance of treasury single account will help to ensure proper cash management by eliminating funds that are left with different commercial banks and by doing so enhance the reconciliation of revenue collection and payment.

It is to this regards that the study wishes to consider the impact of treasury single account on Nigerian banks using Zenith bank as a case study

1.2 STATEMENT OF PROBLEM

What really instigated the study was due to excess financial leakage from the public funds, the poor accountability of ministries and the rate of borrowing by the federal government of Nigeria from most of the commercial banks in Nigeria. Well an end to above stated problem will go a long way in helping the federal government of Nigeria in various ways like the projection for budget, reduction in the rate of borrowing etc. but on the other hand the bank will suffer to the recent development; the introduction of government treasury single account will increase liquidity rate in most commercial banks in Nigeria and cause a lot of cash crunch.
