The payment of November salaries to workers in the public sector may delay as the 36 state governments stayed away from the sharing of the statutory revenue for the month of October.

Finance commissioners of the 36 state governments refused to attend the monthly meeting of the Federation Account Allocation Committee (FAAC) on Thursday in Abuja over the revenue available for sharing.

Chairman of the Forum of Finance Commissioners of Nigeria, Mahmood Yunusa, told newsmen they took the decision following the directive from the chairman of the Nigeria Governors Forum, Governor Abdulaziz Yari.

He said the boycott is to protest the discrepancies in the figures of revenue presented by the Presidency an issue, which according to him, was discussed at the meeting of the National Economic Council in Abuja.

Yunusa said the meeting for sharing of the revenue will be suspended until the revenue figure is reconciled.
