Third Reading of the PIG Bill

On Wednesday 16th April 2019, a motion was brought by Hon. Edward Gyang Pwajok (Jos South/East, Plateau State) urging the House to re-commit the Petroleum Industry Governance (PIG) Bill, 2019 for consideration.

The PIG Bill, 2019 was passed by the National Assembly and transmitted to the President for his assent but has returned with some observations which need to be addressed in this consideration. He further stated that observations made by the President in withholding assent are germane for the smooth operations of the Bill if eventually assented to. The Petroleum Industry and Governance Bill, HB 1053 went through third reading and passage.
