The money was from the revenue that accrued to the federation in the month of March, which has been distributed to enable government meet its financial obligations for the month of April.

However, as at the time of filing this report at about 10.42 pm, the Communique had not been released.

The general declining revenue profile of the nation has generated tension between the federal and state governments, of recent.

The disagreement between officials of the two tiers of government over the poor revenue led to a stalemate at last month’s FAAC meeting., as learnt.

Those who are knowledgeable about the FAAC said the disagreement was responsible for the failure of the ministry to issue any communique last month.

The debate generated by Edo State Governor  Godwin Obadeki’s claim that  the federal government printed N60 billion to augment March Federation Accounts Allocations, has continued to generate reactions from different quarters.
