Transactions of the Nigerian government through the Treasury Single Account (TSA) now stand at over ₦30 trillion.
The Coordinator of TSA in the Office of the Accountant-General of the Federation (AGF), Sylva Okolieaboh disclosed this in Abuja on Monday when he hosted a delegation from The Gambia which is in the country to understudy the implementation of the TSA.
“If you start from 2012 when we started the TSA and you look at the volume of transactions, I think you will be looking at something in the region of ₦30trillion.
“But like I said, that is in terms of transaction volume not in terms of balances or anything, so we are looking at turnover. So the turnover should be over ₦30 trillion.
“When we started the full TSA implementation, sometime around March 2015, as at that time, a lot of people didn’t believe. We are very happy that as at today, what we are doing has attracted so much international attention.
“It is not only The Gambia, we are expecting Ethiopia in the next four weeks and then another country, maybe in the next six weeks and we are aware that the international community appreciates the strides we have made in implementing TSA in Nigeria.
