ASUP wants tertiary institutions exempted from TSA

ASUP-DeclaresTHE inclusion of tertiary institutions in the Treasury Single Account (TSA) will impact negatively on the quality of teaching and administration in the higher level of education in the country, the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) has said.

Speaking yesterday in Abuja, the President of ASUP, Chibuzo Asomugha, said though government’s intention is good, he cautioned that there is need to exempt the education institutions, owing to their peculiarities.

Asomugha explained, “The tertiary sub-sector is purely service-oriented and its revenue is specifically tied to the daily running of the Institutions and for the provisions of consumables needed for teaching and learning.”

“The TSA, though well intended will tie down the processes of provision of daily needs of the institutions and therefore hamper efficient service delivery. As well, if strictly applied in its present format, the full operations of tertiary education institutions will be greatly hampered with regard to service delivery, personnel mobility, and global aspirations.”
