When passed into law, the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB) will contribute to the positive transformation of Nigeria and change the fortune of the citizens.
This was the position of Senate President, Ahmad while speaking at plenary on Thursday.
He spoke in his office while playing host to the British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Catriona Laing CB, adding that the ninth Assembly would ensure the passage of the PIB as promised even though, he pointed out, that the bill had “suffered from a demonic influence” by refusing passage since 2008 when it was first introduced to the sixth Assembly.
“We are so confident that we will be able to pass this bill by April. We want it signed into law by May and we want every stakeholder to be a winner,” Lawan said.
