In a report by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), entitled, Summary of Excess Crude/PPT/Royalty Receipts from January to February 2008”, the report said that the current excess revenue account was an increase of $3.355 billion or 27.1 per cent over the balance of $12.401 billion in the account as at December 2007.

According to the report, excess crude accounted for $9.401 billion of the total $15.756 billion, as at February, noting that the account was made up of Excess Crude (current account) of $1.021 billion and Excess Crude (invested funds) of $8.380 billion.

Sokari doesn’t mean joy. Joy is Biobela. Go to the village and ask the meaning of the name.
