Stakeholders who cut across representatives from the Christian Association of Nigeria, Nigeria Bar Association, Female Lawyers Association, Traditional Rulers, Nigeria Medical Association, Entertainers, Captains of Industries, Town Union Leaders, Women Groups, Artisans and others have endorsed the Treasury Single Account and Pension Reform policies of the Imo State Government.
The stakeholders made this known during a meeting with Governor Emeka Ihedioha at Ahiajoku Conference Centre, Owerri on Thursday.
They restated their commitment to support the governor to deliver dividends of democracy to the people of Imo State.
Earlier, Ihedioha disclosed that it has become imperative to streamline, regularise and mainstream the revenue and financial transactions of the State through the introduction of TSA.
He explained that the reason for proposing pension reforms was due to discrepancies resulting from data base of the past administration, which is incoherent.
He said the verification will be the last his administration and the State will be doing on Imo State pensioners.
He said: “The reason for proposing Pension reforms is due to discrepancies resulting from the Data Base of the past administration which is incoherent. It was never my wish to stress our pensioners who are owed for over 80 month with another verification exercise but it became necessary to enable the government begins payment of what is meant for them immediately.
“On TSA, the state is adopting the process to close leakages which has affected the IGR of the state badly. The TSA will also ensure accountability, transparency and probity in governance.”
