FAAC meeting ends in deadlock Over Monthly Allocations



The monthly Federation Account Allocation Committee (FAAC) meeting ended in a deadlock on Wednesday in Abuja.

The FAAC monthly meeting which is the forum where money is shared among the federal, states and local governments ended with participants wearing long faces.

Chairman, Forum of Finance Commissioners of FAAC Mr Mahmoud Yunusa,, who declined to be interviewed, said in passing that they were going back to confer with the state governors.

However the Director Press, Ministry of Finance , Mr Hassan Dodo, said the meeting would reconvene before the end of the week.

For some months now FAAC participants have been experiencing difficulties in agreeing with figures because of revenue remittance discrepancies.

This is largely attributed to the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) not remitting all revenue accrued within the month.

The corporation has been accused of dishonouring its statutory obligations to the federation account over time.
