Senate President, Ahmed Lawan

The Senate on Tuesday received a joint committee report on the petroleum industry bill.

The bill aims to modernise the petroleum industry and attract more investors into the sector.

The bill was laid before the Senate by the Chairman of the Committee on Petroleum (Downstream), Senator Mohammed Sabo.

President of the Senate, Ahmed Lawan said the report will be carefully studied from now to Thursday for consideration.

President Muhammadu Buhari sent the bill to the National Assembly in September last year.
