The Minister, in a statement by her Senior Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Oluyinka Akintunde, assured Nigerians that the FAAC meeting would hold on Wednesday at 9. a. m.

She said that the Accountant General of the Federation, commissioners of finance and Accountants-General of the 36 States would also be present at the meeting.

Similarly, she said that other representatives of the NNPC, Federal Inland Revenue Service, Nigerian Customs Service and Department of Petroleum Resources would also be at the meeting.
