The Nigerian Senate on Tuesday constituted the conference committee on the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB) during plenary.
The announcement was made by Senate President, Ahmad Lawan.
The members of the committee include Senate Leader, Yahaya Abdullahi, as Chairman; Mohammed Sabo, representing North-West; Albert Bassey representing South-South; Danjuma Goje North-East; Opeyemi Bamidele, South-West; Stella Oduah South-East; Gabriel Suswam North- Central.
“The conference committee will meet with our counterparts in the House. The House will also announce the composition of the conference committee.
“We hope that they will swing into action immediately so that we are able to have the final document of the PIB which we will transmit for presidential assent.
“So, we expect our delegation here under the leadership of the Senate Leader to engage with our colleagues in the House of Representatives,” Lawan urged.
