The federal and state governments as well as the local governments in Nigeria are to share N954.085 billion as allocation for the month of July, 2022 from the federation account.
The figure represents an increase of N151.678 compared to June’s allocation of N802.407 billion.
The Federation Accounts Allocation Committee (FAAC) disclosed this in a communiqué issued on Wednesday at the end of its August meeting in Abuja.
According to the communique, the federal government received N406.610 billion, states received N281.342 billion, and the local governments got N210.617 billion, including gross statutory revenue and value-added tax (VAT).
The communique added that the total revenue comprised N776.918 billion statutory revenue and N177.167 billion value-added tax (VAT) revenue.
The generated revenue for VAT shows a decrease compared to last month when it had N193.827.
The distribution on value-added tax revealed that the federal government received N26.575 billion, states received N88.584 billion, and local governments received N62.008 billion.
