The August 2018 issue of the CBN’s monthly economic report, highlights that federally collected gross revenue was N745.5bn, below January-July average of N764.2bn and 32.7% lower than the monthly budget estimate of N1.1tn. This was driven by twin shortfalls in oil & non-oil revenue. Oil revenues fell 37.0% below the monthly budget estimate of N640.0bn to N403.6bn amid weaker crude oil production arising from repairs and maintenance of oil facilities at various NNPC terminals.
