This assurance was contained in a statement signed by Henshaw Ogubike, the Deputy Director, Press, OAGF, on Friday in Abuja, and read to the Gambian delegation who were in Nigeria to understudy the workings of the TSA.

Also, he said that Nigeria would learn from the Gambians’ achievement on the Government Integrated Financial Management Information System (GIFMIS).

The acting Accountant-General stated the activities lined up for the team include lectures by subject matter experts, interactive sessions and meeting with key stakeholders.

However, the Director of TSA, Sylva Okolieaboh, urged the visiting team to pay attention to all the items slated for discussion.

He also promised the Minister of Finance, Zainab Ahmed, to provide all their needs in terms of adequate knowledge of TSA so that the dream of a standard TSA in The Gambia could be realised.

The team had earlier paid a courtesy call on the Minister of Finance who advised that relevant states that had implemented TSA successfully in Nigeria should either be visited or invited over to Abuja to avail the Gambian team their experiences.

The Gambian Team was led by the Permanent Secretary, Ada Gay and Momodou Bah, the Accountant-General, Ministry of Finance and Economic Affairs, Republic of The Gambia.
