…As Governor Inuwa Yahaya Orders Immediate TSA Implementation, Enforcement

Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya has signed Executive Order No. 5 of 2020, which authorizes the immediate implementation and enforcement of the Treasury Single Account (TSA) in Gombe state.

The order, signed by the Governor on Monday, 13th July, 2020, is sequel to Government’s resolve to centralize and consolidate all cash and investment balances in banks and other financial institutions with a view to having a real time liquidity position of the state in a single view as well as eliminate operational inefficiencies and costs associated with maintaining multiple accounts across multiple financial institutions.

The Street Reporters Newspaper reports that the Governor, by virtue of the authority vested in him by the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 and all other laws enabling him in that behalf, ordered as follows:

4. The Governor may revise or modify this order as he deems fit.

5. This Executive Order shall take effect from the date it is signed.

The Executive Order identified some factors that led to the enforcement of the new financial policy which include weaknesses in the existing practice of preparing monthly payment schedules for governor’s approval in which budgeted resources flow to MDAs.

Other factors are: weak cash planning processes that hinder cash forecasting and its alignment with government spending, inability of the Treasury division of the state Ministry of Finance to have a real time view of the liquidity position of government; thus hindering its ability to efficiently plan and manage idle resources as well as eliminate liquidity mismatch which has led to the budget deficit and poor budget performance.
