Emerald News is bringing to you three local government councils in Delta state that receive highest allocation monthly from the Federal Accounts Allocation Committee (FAAC). Our information was obtained from the website of the National Bureau of Statistics. We are using the allocation distributed to states and local governments in the month of April 2020 as our basis for our analysis.
For the 25 local government councils in the state, a total of N3.8billion was distributed to the councils by FAAC. But the money was not distributed equally to all the local government areas. The reason for the disparity is not known to us. But we are presenting the figures as they are presented in the distribution made by FAAC to the 25 local government councils in the state.
From the figures we obtained from the NBS website, Ughelli North has the highest allocation. The local government got N205million in the month of April. Warri South got N191million. Burutu local government got N173milion. These are the three local councils that received the highest allocation. Our analysis shows Patani as the council with the least allocation in the state. It received N120million in the month of April 2020.
