This was contained in a statement issued by the president’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina on Monday, September 7.

It reads:

“President Muhammadu Buhari has set a deadline of Tuesday, September 15 for full compliance with his directive that all revenue due to the Federal Government or any of its agencies must be paid into the Treasury Single Account (TSA) or designated accounts maintained and operated in the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), except otherwise expressly approved.”

“A circular issued to all Ministries, Departments and Agencies of the Federal Government by the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Mr. Danladi Kifasi urged the MDAs to ensure strict compliance with the deadline to avoid sanctions.”

“The circular – HCSF/428/S.1/125 of September 4, 2015 noted that a number of MDAs were yet to comply with Circular Ref. No. HCSF/428/S.1/120 of August 7, 2015 which conveyed President Buhari’s original directive on the payment of all Federal Government revenue into a Treasury Single Account.”

Buhari had, on August 9, directed all Federal Government Ministries, Departments and Agencies to start paying into a TSA for all government revenues, incomes and other receipts.
