The Federation Accounts Allocation Committee (FAAC) said the revenue reporting template for the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and other members of the revenue sharing committee would soon be ready.
Finance Minister Kemi Adeosun made known on Thursday in Abuja while briefing journalists at the end of the FAAC meeting.
“We are working with the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR), the office of Accountant General of the Federation (OAGF), NNPC and all the stakeholders to develop a new template,” the minister said.
In July, President Muhammadu had ordered a review of the reporting template for the NNPC in a bid to put an end to the controversy over non-remittance of accurate revenue figures by the NNPC to FAAC.
Meanwhile, the FAAC has disbursed a total of about N714.8 billion as revenue generated in the month of July.
The allocation was shared to the three tiers of government, comprising the Federal Government, 36 States, 774 Local Government Areas and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja.
