This represents an increase of N23.878 compared to N675.946 disbursed in the previous month.
This was contained in a communiqué issued at the end of a virtual meeting of FAAC for January 2022.
According to the statement, out of the N699.824 billion shared, federal government received N279.457 billion, state governments got N221.190 billion, and local government councils received N163.879 billion.
N35.297 billion was shared to the oil-producing states as 13 percent derivation revenue.
The total distributable revenue of N699.824 billion comprised distributable statutory revenue of N507.267 billion, distributable value-added tax (VAT) revenue of N187.409 billion, and exchange gain of N5.148 billion.
The communique highlighted that the gross revenue available from the value-added tax was N201.255 billion as against the N196.175 recorded in November, culminating in an increase of N5.080 billion from the previous month.
N5.796 billion allocation to the Northeast Development Commission (NEDC) and N8.050 billion cost of the collection were deducted from the N201.255 billion gross VAT revenue, resulting in the distributable VAT revenue of N187.409 billion.
