The gross monthly distribution by the Federation Account Allocation Committee (FAAC) to the three tiers of government and public agencies totalled to NGN697bn (USD1.69bn) in September (from August revenue). This was a decrease of NGN64bn on the previous payout. From scanty coverage in the local media, we learnt that the take from VAT and import duty increased significantly over the previous month, while receipts from petroleum profit tax (PPT), companies' income tax, excise duty, and oil and gas royalties recorded decreases. State governments received a total of NGN246bn, including NGN29bn, representing the 13% derivation for the few oil-producing states.


The headline figure is made up of NGN478bn in gross statutory distribution, NGN166bn from the VAT pool, recovered exchange gain and recovered excess bank charges of NGN3bn and NGN403m respectively, and NGN50bn from non-oil revenue.


The balance in the Excess Crude Account (ECA) was unchanged at USD61m.


Of the total distribution, NGN72bn was expended on a combination of costs of collection, statutory transfers and unspecified refunds.


From the NNPC's FAAC report for August '21, we understand that a total deduction of NGN215bn was to be made from the corporation's remittance to FAAC this month. The figure consists of a NGN175bn fuel subsidy spending (which was termed "value shortfall") in July, and a NGN40bn outstanding balance from earlier.


Average monthly allocation for January through September '21 amounted to NGN667bn, compared with NGN710bn in 2018, NGN685bn in 2019 and NGN636bn last year.


This latest payout to states again falls far short of their spending. Only a small number of states, led by Lagos, can meet all their obligations at these reduced levels of FAAC distribution because they collect substantial sums of internally generated revenue (IGR).


The ongoing debate on VAT collection between Rivers and Lagos State governments and the FIRS has been moved to the Supreme Court. This came after the Court of Appeal ruled that the involved parties maintain status quo pending the hearing and determination of the application for stay of execution by the FIRS.
