FAAC disclosed this in a communique released on Friday.
“The sum of N12.027 billion (13 per cent of mineral revenue) and N0.296 billion (13 per cent of savings from NNPCL) went to the relevant states as derivation revenue,” FAAC's communique stated.
Chief Samuel Global Trend News gathered that 13 per cent of derivation fund comes from the Federation Account to oil-producing communities, according to Section 162,(2) of the Nigerian Constitution.
According to the National Bureau of Statistics, in 2022 alone, the nine oil-producing states shared N970.20 billion from the Federation Account through the 13 per cent derivation formula.
DAILY POST reports that the federal, states and local government councils shared N1.1 trillion in revenue in August from FAAC.
