Design New Revenue Sharing Formula, Reps Tell RMAFC

The House of Representatives has asked the Revenue Mobilisation, Allocation and Fiscal Commission to come up with a new revenue sharing formula that will put more resources at the disposal of state and local governments.

The House Committee on Finance, which grilled Chairman of the RMAFC, Mr Elias Mbam, at a budget defence session in Abuja on Wednesday, said Nigerians were demanding devolution of power especially on finances.

Mbam, in his written presentation to the committee, a part of which he read out, decried the high cost of governance in the country, saying the RMAFC was on the verge of introducing a review.

The document partly read, “The cost of governance in Nigeria is very high and has continued to be on the increase.

The RMAFC boss also called for the separation of the offices of the Accountant-General of Federation and the Accountant-General of the Federal Government.

Mbam disclosed that the agency  recovered over N75bn from some probes, details of which the committee asked him to provide.

He also said over N474m had been recovered by its current Customs Monitoring Committee.

    Having read this I thought it was rather enlightening.
    I appreciate you spending some time and effort to put this information together.
    I once again find myself spending a significant amount of time both reading and
    posting comments. But so what, it was still worthwhile!
