Presidency: Buhari has not received PIB from National Assembly

The Presidency yesterday said President Muhammadu Buhari was yet to receive the harmonised version of the Petroleum Industry Governance Bill (PIGB) by the National Assembly.

 

The lawmakers harmonised work on the bill on March 28. Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Senator Ita Enang, in a twoparagraph statement dated May 16 and made available to State House correspondents, said his findings revealed that the bill was still undergoing standard operating legislative processes of the National Assembly preparatory to transmission.

 

He said: “Further to several enquiries by the media, interest groups and the public in respect of the bill, may I please state that the said bill has not yet been transmitted by the National Assembly to President.

 

“From my enquiries, the bill is still undergoing standard operating legislative processes of the National Assembly preparatory to transmission, please,” Enang noted.

 

The presidential aide said the Senate Committee on Petroleum Resources (Upstream), Omotayo Alasoadura, had promised that the harmonised bill would be presented to Buhari on March 30. The initial delay was thought to have been caused by the fact that March 30 coincided with Good Friday during which Buhari was in Lagos State for an official visit. The bill was expected to instill best global practice in the oil industry.
