She said the tally includes N1,918,477,820.05 statutory revenue allocation (gross); N310,656,652.68 (deductions); N1,281,148,490.09 value added tax (VAT); N215,776,380:71 Forex Equil; N392,895,753:25 Excess Crude (FGN Intervention Fund); and N282,252,696:30 non-oil revenue.
“It is to be noted that the Federal Government would next year March resume full deductions of loans that were suspended in April 2020. These deductions would definitely reduce the allocations coming to the state from next year,” her statement added.
