The three tiers of government, Federal, state and local governments shared N10.143 trillion from the Federation Account as statutory revenue allocations in 2023, NEITI said.

The Federal Government received N3.99 trillion, representing 39.37 per cent of the total allocation.

The 36 states got N3.585 trillion representing 35.34 per cent while the 774 local government councils shared N2.56 trillion, equivalent to 25.28 per cent.

NEITI attributed the increase to improved revenue remittances to the Federation Account due to the removal of petrol subsidy and the floating of the exchange rate by the new administration.
