Compared to the first half of 2019, each of the allocations is 4%, 2.8% and 2.6% lower respectively. President Buhari approved $150 million from NSIA stabilisation fund in April to supplement the allocations, owing to falling revenues.

On the distribution to the tiers of government, the Federal Government received a total of N219.80bn from the N547.31bn. States received a total of N152.47bn and Local governments received N114.09bn. The sum of N37.02bn was shared among the oil-producing states as 13% derivation fund.

Meanwhile, revenue-generating agencies such as Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) and Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) received N5.24bn, N7.09bn and N1.98bn respectively as cost of revenue collections.

The 0.55 per cent decrease in second-quarter 2020 to a couple of factors, namely: rebound in oil prices in the second quarter as a result of ease of lockdowns by countries across the world and the adjustment of the official exchange rate by the CBN from N307 to a dollar, to N360 to a dollar in March, resulting in higher naira disbursements.
