The Federal Government, States and Local Government Councils on Thursday shared N640.310 billion as revenue allocations for January.

The Director of Information, Ministry of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Hassan Dodo, disclosed this in a communiqué issued at the end of the virtual Federation Accounts Allocation Committee (FAAC) meeting held in Abuja.

The communiqué was made available to journalists on Saturday.

He said the amount shared by the three tiers of government included the cost of collection to different agencies.

According to him, the funds shared were the cost of collection to Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) and the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS).

Dodo noted that the federal government received N226.998 billion, the states got N177.171 billion and the LGAs collected N131.399 billion.

He added that the oil-producing states received N26.777 billion as 13 percent derivation for Mineral Revenue while Cost of Collection/Transfer and Refunds gulped N75.966 billion.

The ministry official said the Gross Revenue available from the Value Added Tax (VAT) for January was N157.351 billion.

However, this was N14.007 billion lower than the N171.358 billion distributed in December last year.
