PIB: external forces fighting against passage-senate president

by Kunle Awosiyan

The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan has blamed the delay in the passage of the Petroleum Industry Bill on some external forces bent on exploiting the country by siphoning the country’s accruable oil revenue.

The Senate President disclosed this during a media briefing organized to mark his 62nd birthday.

Despite the intense contention, Senator Lawan assures that the ninth National Assembly remains committed to ensuring its passage this year.

The Senate President also noted that maintaining the January to December budget timeline is key to ensuring the country does not slide into another economic recession.
