President Muhammadu Buhari has issued a deadline of September 15 for full compliance with his directive that all Federal Government revenue be paid into the Treasury Single Account or designated accounts operated in the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
Femi Adesina, special adviser to the President on media and publicity, announced this on Monday, quoting a circular issued on September 4 to all Ministries, Departments and Agencies of the Federal Government by Mr. Danladi Kifasi, Head of the Civil Service of the Federation.
