There has been a significant increase in amount of money realized from the Non-oil revenue generating activities accruing to the Federation in the month of October 2015. This has led to the Federal Government, State Governments and Local Government Councils to share a total of N473,893 Billion, as Federal Allocation for the month of October, 2015.

The communiqué released by the Federation Accounts Allocation Committee (FAAC) at the end of their meeting in Abuja, indicated that the Gross Revenue of N473,893 billion received for the month of October, is higher by N83,896 when compared with the N389,936 billion distributed in the month of September 2015.
 Although there was an increase in Non Oil Revenue which was as a result of payment of Company Income Tax by the Nigeria Natural Liquefied Natural Gas, there was still a shortfall in the projected Revenue expected from oil. The shortfall was attributed   to revenue loss of $1.3 m arising from drop in average price of Crude oil from $47.315  in the month of August to $46.96, in the month of September, as well as shut down and shut-in of production due to maintenance of terminals during the month.
