CEM REPORT, FINANCE| The Federation Accounts Allocation Committee (FAAC) announced the distribution of ₦1.143 trillion as total revenue for May 2024.

This figure represents a 5.38% decrease compared to the ₦1.208 trillion shared for April 2024 revenue, according to a statement released by the Office of the Accountant General.

While the distributable revenue for May saw a decline, the total revenue generated in May 2024 was ₦3.25 trillion, reflecting a slight increase of 6.07% from the ₦2.192 trillion recorded in April.

This growth can be attributed to a rise in the Excess Crude Account (ECA) balance, which remained stable at $473,754.57, providing a buffer for unforeseen economic circumstances.

The ₦1.143 trillion distributable revenue was divided amongst the three tiers of government – Federal, State, and Local Government Councils. Here’s a detailed breakdown:

Federal Government: Received ₦365.813 billion, representing approximately 32% of the total distributable revenue.

State Governments: Received ₦388.419 billion, accounting for roughly 34% of the shared revenue.

Mixed Signals in Revenue Components

Decreases: However, the report also noted considerable decreases in Import and Excise Duties, Royalty Crude and Gas, EMTL, CET Levies, and VAT. These declines require further investigation to understand the underlying factors.

Looking Ahead

The FAAC disbursement for May 2024 reflects a mixed picture for the Nigerian economy. While there was a slight decline in shared revenue compared to the previous month, the overall revenue generation showed a positive trend.

The significant rise in CIT and PPT indicates potential growth in the oil sector, which needs to be balanced with the observed decreases in other revenue streams. Continuous monitoring and strategic economic decisions will be crucial for ensuring sustainable revenue generation.
