Senate to debate PIB report Thursday

The Senate will, on Thursday this week, debate the report of its joint committees on Petroleum (Upstream, Downstream and Gas) on the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB).

Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, disclosed this on Tuesday after the chairman of the panel, Senator Mohammed Sabo (Jigawa South West), submitted the committees’ report.

He mandated the Joint Committee to provide lawmakers with copies of the bill ahead of its consideration to enable them to study its content. 

Lawan said, “We will be considering the report on Thursday.

“We have today, tomorrow and Thursday to look at the report so that when we consider the report, we will be doing so on the basis of what we have been able to read from this very important report.”
