The presidency has alerted workers in the public sector that their June salaries may be delayed, following the unresolved differences over the revenue available for sharing from the federation account.
Finance Minister, Keni Adeosun, issues the alert, as another meeting of the federation account allocation committee for sharing of revenue by the three tiers of government for the month of May again ended in a deadlock in Abuja.
The Minister, addressing the state house correspondents, at the end of a meeting of the national economic council, said that President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, had been briefed on the crisis.
The stalemate followed the insistence of the governors that Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) increases the revenue it paid into the federation account for the month of May by N40 billion.
Adeosun explained that both the federal governments and the state governors need to find an urgent solutions to end the crisis for the meeting of the federation account allocation committee to end.
She hopes that the crisis will be over in the next few days.
