The commission also saw N361.15 million profit during the quarter under review.
In its newly released second-quarter report, the Commission explained that the total revenue realised was ₦1.712 billion comprising of ₦1.464billion from operational levy (i.e., market charges) and ₦248.805million from other sources (e.g., licensing).
While total revenue realised during the quarter under review was N1.712 billion, the total expenditure of the Commission stood at ₦1.351billion as against ₦1.190billion in the first quarter of 2018.
A comparison of revenue and expenditure of the Commission in the second quarter of 2018 showed a positive net cash flow of ₦361.15million, unlike in the first quarter when its expenditure was more than revenue.
