The House Committee on the Petroleum Industry Bill has agreed submit its report on July 11.
The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal, stated this at a business lecture organised by the Island Club in Lagos that the committee had concluded hearings on the bill in all the regions except Abuja.
He said, “The PIB is so dear to our heart. We have concluded the second reading in the house, which was hitch free. Not a single member voted against the reading.
“We have constituted another committee and it has conducted hearings for the various regions. The final hearing will be in Abuja; thereafter, the committee will submit the report to us.”
He added that the House had achieved a lot because members were often determined to place the country above every other interest.
Tambuwal said, “We, in the legislature, do not have the luxury of other arms of government because the legislature is a gathering of equals representing Nigerians from all walks of life, working together primarily to deliver our mandates.
