The All Progressives Congress (APC) has commended the Senate on the passage of the historic Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB) which seeks to introduce reforms that would ensure greater transparency and accountability in the Nigerian oil and gas industry.

The Party noted in a statement issued Thursday in Abuja by its National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Bolaji Abdulahi, that the Bill had languished in the various chambers of the National Assembly for about 12 years but it took the purposeful and dedicated APC-led Senate to pass the Bill.

“We are very excited that the Bill was passed today after about 12 years delay. We specially commend the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki for his focused leadership of the 8th Senate, which has produced several legislative actions that have positively affected the lives of Nigerians, promoted good governance and advanced on-going efforts by the APC-led administration to rebuild the country.

“The passage of the Bill is an indication that our federal legislators are diligent and reform-minded, and are committed to fulfilling the promises our Party made to Nigerians.

“We call on the House of Representatives under the leadership of Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara to follow the example of the Senate by also promptly passing the PIB.”

The Party also called on Nigerians to continue to support and cooperate with the President Muhammadu Buhari APC-led administration and the National Assembly as they continue to make laws and execute projects to improve the wellbeing of Nigerians.
