Nigeria government revenues fall 2 pct in Feb on low oil prices


ABUJA  – Nigeria’s government revenues fell 2 percent to 401.5 billion naira in February, from 410 billion naira in January, on lower oil, gas and other revenues, the accountant general said on Thursday.

Nigeria’s excess crude oil savings account remains unchanged at $2.06 bln, Jonah Otunla told reporters. Lower revenues because of the decline in oil prices and a fall in the price of natural gas, as well as lower non-oil revenues in February contributed to the decline, he said.

“The persistent shut down and shut in of trunks and pipelines at various terminals continued to impact negatively on the revenue performance,” he added.
