“In the same vein, crude oil export sales increased by 0.82 million barrels, resulting in an increased revenue to the federation of 54.19 million dollars.

“However, the average unit price dropped further from 75.69 dollars to 73.92 dollars.

“The distributable statutory revenue for the month was N682.16 billion, while, the total revenue distributable for the current month (including Value Added Tax (VAT) and Exchange Gain Difference) was N788.13 billion.’’
