FAAC disburses N3.946trn in 6 months-NEITI

The Nigeria Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (NEITI) quarterly report has revealed that the Federation Accounts Allocation Committee (FAAC) has disbursed N3.946 trillion in the first half of 2018 to Federal, State and Local Governments,

The report released in Abuja, on Monday, noted that amount rose by 41.4 per cent compared to N2.788 trillion disbursed in the first half of 2017 and 95.4 per cent higher than the N2.019 trillion disbursed in the first half of 2016.

According to the report, Delta state received the highest allocation of N101.19 billion in the six-month followed by Akwa Ibom with N100.2 billion; Rivers State with N85.01 billion, while Bayelsa received N77.14 billion.

From the report, the four states received a total of N364.26 billion in the quarter under review.

 

[penci_blockquote style=”style-2″ align=”none” author=””]“This shows a generally declining pattern in disbursements from first quarter of 2013 until a trough was reached in second quarter 2016. Thereafter, an upward pattern is observed, and this increase continued until second quarter of 2018,’’ it stated.[/penci_blockquote]

“Thus, the disbursements in the first half of 2018 were almost double the disbursements in the first half of 2016.

“The breakdown of the data reveals that in the first half of 2018, the Federal Government received N1.652 trillion, which made up 41.8 per cent of the total amount disbursed;

“The states got N1.375 trillion, representing 34.8 per cent of the total; while N795 billion was disbursed to the Local Government Areas (LGAs), representing 20.1 per cent of the total.” it said.

The report further noted that following the top four states to make the top ten category in the report was Lagos state that received N59.52 billion, Kano N39.88 billion, Edo N32.88 billion, Kaduna N32.86, Ondo N30.96 billion and Borno N30.04 billion.

On the other hand, the report revealed that the 10 states with the least federation allocation received a total of N189.45 billion, about six per cent less than the N201.39 billion total allocation received by Delta and Akwa Ibom states.

Osun state received the least allocation in the six-month period with N10.24 billion, while Cross River, Ekiti, Zamfara and Ogun states received N17.13 billion, N17.92 billion, N18.64 billion, N18.79 billion respectively.

Others include Plateau, Gombe, Kwara, Ebonyi and Taraba, with allocation of N20.6 billion, N20.64 billion, N21.39 billion, N21.61 billion and N22.49 billion respectively.

Continuing, the report noted, “In the first quarter of 2013, total disbursements were N2.607 trillion. This figure for first quarter of 2013 was the highest over this period while the N886.4 billion disbursed in second quarter 2016 was the lowest.

 

[penci_related_posts taxonomies=”undefined” title=”Online Related Posts” background=”” border=”” thumbright=”no” number=”4″ style=”grid” align=”none” displayby=”recent_posts” orderby=”random”]“This indicates a difference of N1.721 trillion between disbursements in the highest and lowest months.

This figure is very large and further highlights the volatility in revenue for the Federation, arising from the dependence on oil.

“This shows a generally declining pattern in disbursements from first quarter of 2013 until a trough was reached in second quarter 2016. Thereafter, an upward pattern is observed, and this increase continued until second quarter of 2018,’’ it stated.

The report indicated that the N2.008 trillion disbursed in second quarter of 2018 was the highest since third quarter of 2014, adding that second quarter of 2018 was the first time an amount in excess of N2 trillion was disbursed since third quarter 2014.

“This is a run of 14 consecutive quarters of disbursements below N2 trillion.’’ It added.

It further stated  that all disbursements from first quarter of 2013 to second quarter 2014 were in excess of N2 trillion; this figure, it added  clearly showed  the contraction in revenue for all tiers of government, a pointer to why they had struggled to meet their obligations.
