CHAPTER ONE

1.0 INTRODUCTION

1.1 BACKGROUND OF STUDY

The public 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 of the public sectors 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 public sectors; that’s to say that the performance of the public 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 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.

The implementation of government treasury single account has affected the performance of the public sectors in Nigeria; the effect is noticed in the area of employment.

The adoption of the TSA is in the greater interest of the states, as it will pave the way for the timely payment and capturing of all government revenue in a single government treasury account, without the intermediation of multiple banking arrangements as had been the case. Moreover, embracing the scheme can help reduce the mismanagement of public funds by revenue-generating agencies, as well as check excess inflation, high interest rates and round-tripping of the government deposits.

It is to this regards that the study wishes to audit the treasury single account in Nigeria, run a comparative analysis on the performance of the public sector before and after the implementation of treasury single account in Nigeria.

1.2 STATEMENT OF PROBLEM

The implementation of TSA has gone a long way to monitor and check financial leakages even with the overall achievements; TSA provides a number of other problems and despite the fact that, it enhances the overall effectiveness of a financial management system. The establishment of a TSA should, therefore, receive priority in any Government reform agenda. According to the directive, this measure is specifically to promote transparency and facilitate compliance with sections 80 and 162 of the 1999 Constitution. In a statement by LaoluAkande (2015), former Senior Special Assistant to the Vice President on Media and Publicity, all receipts due to the Federal Government or any of its agencies must be paid into TSA or designated accounts maintained and operated in the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), except otherwise expressly approved. The presidential directive, in the view of analysts, would end the previous public accounting situation of several fragmented accounts for government revenues, incomes and receipts, which in the recent past has meant the loss or leakages of legitimate income meant for the federation account. President Buhari had earlier promised state governors at the inaugural meeting of the National Economic Council (NEC), in June, that all revenues prescribed for lodgment into the federation account will be treated as such under his watch and that he will ensure strict compliance with all relevant laws on accounting, allocation and disbursement. Since then the presidency has worked with relevant agencies of the federal government to evolve this policy directive. This directive applies to fully funded organs of government like the Ministries, Department. All the aims of treasury single account was achieved but the banking sector of Nigeria did not benefit from the achievement; the implementation of treasury single account has reduced money flow in most banks; the poor circulation of money has also affected the masses as most commercial banks were no long buoyant to give out loans to their customers. There is need for an effective audit of the treasury single account in Nigeria.
