Nigeria’s President Mohammadu Buhari rode on the back of his zero tolerance for corruption to Aso Rock Villa, Nigeria’s seat of power. Upon assumption of Office, the President together with his team mapped out strategies of plugging leakages and ensuring accountability in the management of government resources.
One of such strategies was the full implantation of the Treasury Single Account, TSA. The TSA, though founded by the Jonathan administration, it only attracted partial implementation as economic managers, believed a full implementation would adversely affect the economy. One Year on, Nigerians have been divided over the gains of the Policy.
To this end and as part of efforts to gauge the impact of the policies of Government on the Citizenry, the African Leadership Magazine is putting together this online poll to measure the economic impact of the implementation of the Treasury Single Account in Nigeria by the Buhari-led administration.
In line with the magazine’s objective of providing credible information and support to leaders in Nigeria and Africa at large, the poll which is tagged: “Strategic Poll for Rethinking Nigeria’s Economic Policy”, is an engagement tool to provide Nigerian leaders the perceptions and opinions of Nigerians from all spheres of life in regards to the economic situation in the economy and the way forward. Being one of the key policies of the current administration with ripple effects on the economy, it becomes necessary to count the gains and losses of the Treasury Single Account policy, which has been active in the last one year.
Please share your thoughts. The poll ends on September 12, 2016.
Has the Treasury Single Account been of benefit to Nigeria’s Economy?
