0 656

The National Assembly has hinted of its desire to reconvene soon to consider the revised Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB) of the executive arm.

Chairman of the Senate Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Senator Ajibola Basiru, who made this disclosure to THISDAY yesterday, said the federal parliament would not hesitate to cut short its annual vacation to consider the bill once it is forwarded by the executive arm “before the end of our annual vacation on September 15.”

Basiru, who was responding to last Thursday’s submission of the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Timipre Silva, that the executive will request the legislative arm to reconvene to consider the PIB, stressed that the leadership of the National Assembly has the prerogative to reconvene anytime in the best interest of the country.

He said: “The leadership of the Senate has the prerogative to reconvene if need be at any time in the interest of the country.”
