Professor Hannatu Sabo Ahmad FCNA, FCPA. Honourable Commissioner,
Ministry of Finance Jigawa State.

 

The Financial Statement have been prepared in accordance with the International Public Sector Accounting Standards (IPSAS) and the Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria (FRCN). As indicated in the 2020 Financial Statements, the year 2022 Financial Statements would be the Second Transitional Accrual Financial Statements in the State. Accordingly, transitional exemptions due to the inconclusive valuation of legacy assets, certain exemptions still apply in compliance with IPSAS 33 (Time Adoption of Accrual Basis).

The three (3) years transition relief period to full accrual (IPSAS) 2021 to 2024 and the Public Financial Management reform project embarked by the state would facilitate the full migration in the 2024 fiscal year.

It is my singular honour, as the Accountant General, and the State's Accounting Officer for receipts and payments of Government, saddled with the responsibility of general supervision of accounts and the preparation of Annual Accounts to present the 2022 Second Transitional Accrual Basis IPSAS Financial Statements.

To fulfill these Accounting and Reporting responsibilities, I am to affirm that proper accounting records are preserved; International Public Sector Accounting Standards (IPSAS) are applied; and Internal Control Procedures are established to provide reasonable assurances that financial transactions are realistically recorded, and State Public Resources were safeguarded for prevention or detection of fraud and irregularities.

Efforts were made to ensure that these Financial Statements reflect the Government's financial position as of 31st December 2022 and its operation for the year ended on that date.

In my opinion, these Financial Statements fairly reflect the financial position of the Jigawa State Government as of 31st December 2022
