The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, has justified its June remittance of N147 billion to the Federation Accounts and Allocation Committee, FAAC, the News Agency of Nigeria reports.

The Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs of the NNPC, Ndu Ughamadu, said in a statement that  the June remittance was in line with the terms of agreement it reached with governors on the matter.

“This will be subject to sufficient funds from sales of domestic crude allocation for the corresponding month after meeting cash call obligations on Joint Ventures, (JV) deductions of petrol, cost under recovery and pipeline maintenance.“

He said NNPC was able to surpass the terms of agreement with the governors on the monthly remittance for June by N35 billion by taking from the fund meant for settling cash call obligations.
