He said that the figure distributed was higher than the N698.7 billion shared for the month of September by N89.42 billion.

Oise said a communique signed by the Accountant-General of the Federation, Mr Ahmed Idris was issued at the end of the meeting.

“The communiqué issued by the Technical Sub -Committee of FAAC indicates that the gross statutory revenue received is N682.16 billion which is higher than the N569.28 billion received in the previous month by N112.88 billion.

“In the same vein, crude oil export sales increased by 0.82 million barrels, resulting in an increased revenue to the federation of $54.19 million.

“However, the average unit price dropped further from $75.69 to $73.92.

“The distributable statutory revenue for the month was N682.16 billion, while, the total revenue distributable for the current month (including Value Added Tax (VAT) and Exchange Gain Difference) was N788.13 billion.’’

In the summary of the distribution, the Federal Government got N284.3 billion from statutory revenue, N15.14 billion from VAT, N0.372 billion from the exchange gain, culminating in N299.9 billion.

The oil producing states received N58.09 billion also representing 13 per cent derivation revenue.

The communique also said that the cost of collection, transfer and Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) refund came up to N 88.421 billion.

The communique said that the shut-in and shut -down of pipelines at various terminals persisted due to leaks and maintenance.

“Revenues from oil and gas royalties, Petroleum Profits Tax (PPT) and VAT increased significantly, while Companies Income Tax (CIT), import and excise duties increased only marginally.’’

The NACOFED conference which ended on Wednesday, was held for State Commissioners for Finance, Accountants-General of states, staff of FIRS, Budget Office of the Federation, Debt Management Office and other stakeholders in the finance sector.

  2. There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment?s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.

  4. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?|
