NNPC’s failure to remit funds has plunged many states into distress – El-Rufai

Governor Nasir El-Rufai has again lashed out at the Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Limited for not remitting any revenue into the federation’s account since the beginning of this year.

El-Rufai who spoke at the 2022 Tax Dialogue organised by the Kaduna State Revenue Service in the state capital on Monday, November 7, said NNPC’s failure to remit revenue into the federation’s account has plunged some states into distress.

The Kaduna state Governor noted that federal and state governments now rely on revenues and taxes generated by the Federal Inland Revenue Service and Nigerian Customs Service for survival.

He also disclosed that some states can no longer pay salaries and fulfil their social contract to citizens.
