Nigeria’s gross revenue drops by N64.444bn



Spread The News

AS a result of the drop in the price of oil in recent times, Nigeria’s gross revenue in the month of August dropped again to N369.140 billion from the N433.584 billion recorded in July.
Anastesia Nwaobia, Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Finance disclosed this after the Federal Accounts Allocation Committee (FAAC) meeting in Abuja, adding the Excess Crude Account has increased to $2.227 billion.
She said the drastic drop in crude oil export, shutdown and shut-in of production for maintenance at different times and terminals in July, negatively impacted crude oil revenue.
Apart from oil, revenue from Value Added Tax (VAT) dropped also by N12.258 billion to N59.689 billion in August from N71.947 billion in July. The figure also dropped N43.007 billion lower than N102.696 budgeted estimates.
Nwaobia also announced that the Excess Crude Account (ECA) had accrued to $2.257 billion and that the government had decided not to touch the Account for now but prefer to keep it as a buffer.
At the end of the FAAC meeting, N412.608 billion was shared among the three tiers of government as against the N490.2 billion that was shared the previous month.
For statutory allocation, N347.959 billion was shared among the three tiers with the Federal Government receiving N168.623 billion or 52.68 percent of what was shared; states governments got N85.528 billion or 26.72 percent; Local governments received N65.938 billion or 20.6 percent, while the balance of N27.870 billion was shared as 13 percent derivation to oil and gas producing states.
A total of N59.689 billion was shared by the three governments from VAT proceeds. From the amount, the Federal Government got N8.953 billion; states received N29.845 billion, while local governments pocketed N20.891 billion.
Nwaobia revealed that N4.960 billion was also shared as exchange gains proceeds while N12.5 billion was refunded to the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) from what they over taxed their paying individuals and corporate entities.
Nigeria lost some $8.65 million to drop in average price of crude from $61.27 per barrel in June to $56.76 in July, according to the finance ministry.
Soft oil prices have dealt a blow to government resources and there are now desperate move to look for ways of revving up income. Analysts see revenue losses worsening at least for August and September, especially as oil prices hovered around $43 as of Tuesday.
Government official records further show that between January and July 2015, revenue inflows were re-ordered at N1.857 trillion; about N156.9 billion lower than what was budgeted.
