ZAMFARA ASSEMBLY TASKS MDAs ON TAX REMITTANCE 


The Zamfara House of assembly has urged Ministries, Department and Parastatals (MDAs) to remit taxes generated into the state Treasury Single Account (TSA) to boost its revenue.


Mr Shamsudeen Hassan-Basko (APC, Talata-Mafara North, Chairman, House Committee on Finance and Appropriation gave the advice in Gusau on Thursday, while speaking at the 2022 MDAs budget proposal defence.
Hassan-Basko said that in spite the low Internal Generated Revenue (IGR) of the state, some MDAs were not willing to support government to promote it’s revenue base.


“As a lawmaking body and representatives of people of the state, we cannot fold our arms and allow such practice to continue.


“We noticed that the MDAs are not willing to support government in the area of revenue generation which has become compulsory for every state, considering the economic situation of the country”, he said.
The committee chairman called on the board of Internal Revenue Services to maximise its commitments to improve the state’s IGR.

“We are going to partner with the revenue generation agencies to ensure that all income generated in the state must go through government TSA account”, he said.
According to him, the assembly is giving emphasis on International Public Sector Accounting Standard compliance in the 2022 appropriation law.


“We are also emphasizing on revenue generation, therefore, before we allocate fund to any ministry, we have to check its performance for the state.


“We want to achieve a realistic budget, a budget with good performance in the 2022”, he added.
Meanwhile, the State Directorate of Land and Survey has earmarked N700 million for personnel cost and payment of compensation of various proposed government projects.


Mr Bashir-Madaro Walin-kurya, Special Adviser to Gov. Bello Matawalle on the directorate disclosed this while speaking to newsmen after defending the 2022 budget proposal at the assembly.
