Abdulsalam canvasses compliance to TSA

As the Federal government continues to intensify efforts to plug leakages in all spheres of the country’s economy, the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) has re-echoed the call for prudence and structuring resources to priority.

Managing Director of the agency, Engr. Ibrahim Abdulsalam has called on staff in the organization to adhere strictly to the tenets of the newly introduced Treasury Single Account (TSA), tax policy as a way of aiding government to reposition the economy.

According to the agency helmsman, other policy initiatives of the Federal Government must also be supported and followed through to the letter as they will aid the country out of the economic doldrums.

“The present economic realities have left us with no other option than to align ourselves with the policy direction of the Federal Government by prioritizing our expenditure and also blocking leakages,” Abdulsalam said.

Abdulsalam who made these remarks at a one-day workshop attended by top management staff of NAMA at the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) Training Centre, NCAA Annex, Ikeja, explained that the Treasury Single Account is a unified government accounting system which enables consolidation and optimal utilization of revenue, adding that in the light of dwindling oil fortunes, there was the need for all stakeholders to support and encourage the reforms of the Federal Government both in their individual and collective capacities to succeed, as these policy initiatives according to him were bound to give the Nigerian economy and by extension, the aviation sector the needed boost and turnaround in the long run.

The NAMA boss also charged participants to look inwards and device new frontiers where the agency could generate more revenue from non-aeronautical sources, just as he cautioned against waste and frivolous expenses.
