Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited, NNPC, has said it will make withdrawal of N242.53bn from the Federation Account Allocation Committee account as subsidy for Premium Motor Spirit.

The said sum as contained in the firm’s latest presentation to the FAAC meeting in Abuja on Friday will be deducted this month, Naija News reports.

Although it described the proposed subsidy deduction as a value shortfall, NNPC noted that the fund would be recovered from February 2022 proceeds due for sharing in the March 2022 FAAC meeting.
