The oil producing states of the Niger Delta received additional N42.8 billion representing 13 per cent derivation.

On the new template, the minister said,that the draft would be out by next month and be sent to the states for their inputs.

She also said that henceforth, a pre-FAAC meeting would hold between the Federal Ministry of Finance and the NNPC to consider the figures availablw for remittance for the month before each FAAC.
