Politics TSA: Why We 'll Not Submit to Buhari's Policy - National Assembly



Nigeria’s federal legislature yesterday said it would not be part of the Treasury Single Account (TSA) being implemented by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Buhari had during last Wednesday’s media chat, said he was having challenge with the National Assembly over the TSA.

“We are having problems with them (National Assembly) on TSA. We have to have a closed door session with them,” the president said.


, both chambers said such would amount to, “surrendering of their autonomy to the executive.”

Spokesperson of the senate, Aliyu Sabi Abdullahi, told Daily Trust that “There is no trouble on TSA, it is as an executive programme and we cannot surrender our autonomy to the executive.

“Submitting ourselves to the TSA is surrendering our autonomy to the executive. We are on the first line charge as guaranteed by the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“Why should we give you our funds to put in the TSA and then we will be subjected to your own control, is that autonomy?”
