Buhari task ministers on Treasury Single Account

The adoption of Treasury Single Account has resulted in the blocking of financial leakages in  public sector, President Muhammadu Buhari has said.

Speaking yesterday during the inauguration of Minister, Buhari said the initiative is  making more funds available for the business of governance and ensuring the welfare of citizens.

According to him, the  Central Bank of Nigeria has also assisted more than 30 States of the federation with concessionary loans to offset salary arrears for their workers.

On the monetary side, he explained that  the CBN has also implemented country-specific and innovative policies that have helped to stabilize the exchange rate and conserve our reserves.

Explaining further, the President said: “Finally, our new ministers must proceed to work speedily and do their utmost to justify the confidence we have placed in them not only by their conduct but also by their performance in their various positions.

“Over all our economy is poised for sustained job creation, poverty reduction and inclusive growth. Regardless of the present challenges we are confronting, I believe all Nigerians will keep hope alive and sustain their optimism about the future of our economic well being.

“The Ministries have been rationalised and reduced to twenty-four. These are the Ministries and their Ministers.
These are the Ministries and their Ministers
