Treasury Single Account (TSA) is a new government policy to fight corruption in the Nigerian public sector. The policy has received a lot of compliments from many Nigerians; however, empirical studies have produced mixed results. The study examined the effects of Treasury Single Accounts (TSA) on the revenue generation of federal government parastatals in Ekiti state. The study specifically examined the effect of TSA on revenue generation of Federal University Oye-Ekiti, Federal Teaching Hospital Ido, Federal Road Safety Commission Ado-Ekiti and Federal Polytechnics Ado-Ekiti. Both Descriptive and inferential statistics were used. The descriptive statistics include mean, standard deviation, minimum and maximum while the study employed paired sample t-test for inferential analysis. The study reveals that TSA has not enhanced the revenue generation among federal government parastatals in Ekiti state. The research further shows that TSA is counterproductive since average revenue generated after the implementation of TSA is lower than the average revenue that the parastatals generated before the implementation of TSA. The study recommends that the federal government of Nigeria should investigate the reasons why the TSA is counterproductive in Ekiti state and adequately monitor its implementation.
