The under recovery, which the NNPC pays to cover the loss, was money that should have been shared among the three tiers of government.

Minister of Finance, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun, made the explanation while fielding questions from State House correspondents, after the weekly Federal Executive Council, FEC, meeting, presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari at the Council Chamber, Presidential Villa, Abuja.
