According to the Senate, of the said amount, 55 oil marketers are to receive N275,750,415,108 while 19 others will get N73,452,639,866. It also recommended that the 55 oil marketers be paid 100 percent of their claims, it, however, call for the payment of 65 percent claims to other marketers due to contentions in their figures.


Some of the oil marketing companies (OMC) and the amount approved for them include:

The Committee in the report presented by its Chairman, Senator Kabiru Marafa noted that the marketers made claims to the tune of N670,497,543,15, as of June 30, 2017, but the PPPRA verified and approved the sum of N429,054,203,228 to the Federal Ministry of Finance, adding that while the verified figure was approved by the Federal Executive Council, further verification by the Presidential Initiative on Continuous Audit (PICA) reduced the amount to N407,255,263,288.
