The Accountant-General of the Federation, Mr Ahmed Idris has inaugurated a 13-man committee on the Treasury Journal Finance, tasking them to work assiduously to bring innovative ways that will ensure that funds are available for the production and publication of the 5th Edition of the Treasury Journal.
Mr Idris gave the charge on Wednesday in Abuja, where he stated that the Treasury Journal is a source of pride to the Office of the Accountant-General of the Federation, and represents our determination at showcasing the role of the OAGF in Government programmes and activities.
He, however, regretted that its funding has not been as expected as it has largely been through advertisements and other supports from MDAs which usually affects the production of the Journal as at when due.
The AGF also charged the Editorial Board of the Journal to ensure highest standards and quality of inputs and publication of Treasury Journal.
He therefore expressed his confidence on the committee to deliver on the task assigned to them by assisting the Editorial Board to achieve its mandate.
Responding, the Chairman of the Committee, Alhaji Ibrahim Tumsah, thanked the Accountant –General for the confidence reposed on them and assured that they will work hard to ensure that adequate funds are raised to ensure timely realization of the production of the 5th Edition of the Treasury Journal.
