The government of Nasarawa State says it has complied with the new Local Government’s financial guidelines as directed by the Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU) reports Dailytrust.
The Permanent Secretary, Ministry for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Malam Bala Sani made the disclosure during the state’s LG Joint Account Committee (JAC) meeting, at the ministry’s headquarters in Lafia.
He said that the state government has fully complied with the directive in order to ensure prudence and accountablility. He added that guidelines have been put into operation since June 1 to ensure smooth success.
However, the JAC meeting in the state still holds because money is not sent yet directly to LGAs’ account, he said.
With some of the development areas not recognized by the new guidelines, the permanent secretary called on the LG chairmen to share the allocation with respective development areas.
