NNPC’s Failure to Remit Revenue Has Caused Many States Financial Distress — El-Rufai

Amidst the nation’s dwindling economy, Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has lamented that the inability of the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited, NNPC to remit any revenue into the federation’s account since the beginning of this year has put many states into severe financial distress.

El-Rufai raised the concern at the 2022 Tax Dialogue organised by the Kaduna State Revenue Service held in the state capital.

He said the federal and state governments now rely on revenues and taxes generated by the Federal Inland Revenue Service and Nigerian Customs Service for survival.

According to him, the situation has led to the inability of most states to pay salaries and fulfil their social contract to citizens.
