Senate President, Bukola Saraki

You will recall that Senator Dino Melaye first raised the alarm that Remita, the official e-payment agent, made N25b from processing the Treasury Single Account payments.

The Nigeria Senate has hinted that they will begin the probe of the N25b Treasury Single Account processing fee, allegedly collected by Remita, an e-collection agent.

Speaking to Punch Newspapers, the Chairman, Senate Committee on Banking Insurance and Other Financial Institutions, Senator Rafiu Ibrahim said “The probe of the alleged fraudulent transactions involving the Treasury Single Account is very important to the Senate and the leadership is desirous of conducting a holistic investigation into it.

“The fact that the standing committees have not been inaugurated does not mean that the joint committees won’t submit their report on the investigation as directed by the Senate President.

“The committees already have chairmen and vice chairmen and they have already started preliminary actions with their clerks pending their inauguration, probably next week.”
