FAAC Moves To Get New Revenue Reporting Template For NNPC



The Federal Account Allocation Committee (FAAC) has begun the process of producing a new reporting template that will serve as a guild for the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) on revenue remittance to the federation account. The move, according to FAAC, is part of efforts to find a lasting solution to the frequent issue of revenue controversy by the state oil company. Meanwhile, FAAC yesterday approved the sharing of the total sum of N714.809 billion as revenue for the month of July to be shared among all the tires of government for August. The minister of finance, Mrs Kemi Adeosun made the disclosure yesterday at the monthly meeting of FAAC. Adeosun said the federal government is at the final stage of the daft, which she said will be ready by next meeting slated to hold on September 26. This is as she also disclosed that President Muhammadu Buhari has directed the NNPC to always hold a preFAAC meeting with the Ministry of Finance to avoid issues that always lead to crisis between FAAC and NNPC. “A committee for the revenue reporting template for the NNPC and the federation account will be ready before the next meeting. It will define the flow of revenue to the federation account,” Adeosun said. The issue of template is meant to achieve a reliable template for revenue reporting for NNPC.
