BREAKING: President Buhari Seeks Review To New Petroleum Industry Act


President Buhari has sent a request to the Senate to amend the Petroleum Industry Act 2021 enacted by the National Assembly barely two months ago.

Mr President’s request was included in a letter dated 16, September 2021, and read in the plenary session on Tuesday by Ahmad Lawan, the Senate President.

Mr President in the letter clarified that the engagement of two non-executive members as empowered by the Act to the board of the Nigerian Midstream and Downstream Petroleum Regulatory Authority, NPRA and Upstream Regulatory Commission, URC lacks the reflection of equal geo-political representation.
