President-Muhammadu-Buhari-1 (1)

President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday,12th of October, said his administration remained committed to accountability in handling the affairs of the country.

He added that the enforcement of the Treasury Single Account was not optional for growth, even if making it work would be sacrificial.

According to a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, the President spoke when he received executives of the Association of National Accountants of Nigeria, led by Alhaji Shehu Ladan, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Buhari said, “One of the cardinal objectives of this administration is that people and all government institutions must give account of what comes in and goes out.

“We did not introduce the TSA, but we enforced it. TSA makes a lot of sense; that you must have to give account of whatever comes in and goes out in government finance; that’s accountability.

He urged accountants to remain focused and support the government in the ongoing fight against corruption.

In his remarks, Ladan commended the President for the achievements in ensuring an inclusive and strong economy by plugging leakages and making youth empowerment and infrastructure top priorities.

He added that Nigeria’s image in the comity of nations had also improved significantly, while attracting more foreign direct investments.

The ANAN President noted that the President’s assent to the Not-Too-Young-To- Run bill further encouraged youth participation in governance.
