TSA: Nigerian govt owing SystemSpecs
The Managers of Remita, SystemSpecs says the Federal Government is yet to fulfill her own part of their agreement, as the organization is being owed for over 10 months.
The Managing Director, John Obaro disclosed this to reporters at the event to commemorate “One Year Anniversary of TSA” in Abuja on Tuesday, February 14, 2017.
According to the MD, “there are issues with the fees, effectively resolved but not fully resolved. We’ve effectively not being paid since May last year (2016). It’s almost a year we’ve not been paid. The Agreed figure with government is one percent. A renegotiation was made. We have a cap of about N5,000 for each transaction”.
Speaking on behalf of the Office of The Accountant-General of the Federation, Sylva Okolieaboh pointed out that all the necessary arrangement to ensure that the organization is paid has been concluded and waiting for approval.
“We are processing their payments. We’ve received their invoice and we are processing it. When you want to make payments that are very significant you will need to verify them and then it has to go through some approval processes.
We have done all the verifications in our office and we have sent it for approval. In no distance time the approval will come and we will pay them”.
Obaro also revealed that in the coming weeks Nigerians will be able to execute all transactions that have to do with TSA directly from their mobile phone without necessarily visiting the bank.
