PIB: Senator Plans Virtual Town Hall Meeting, Oct 9
Chairman Senate Committee on Navy, Senator George Sekibo said he will convene a hybrid town hall meeting with the components of physical and virtual participation on the 9th of October 2020 to harness critical views that would form part of his presentation on the floor of the Senate.
He has described the return of the Petroleum Industry Bill by President Muhammadu Buhari for passage by the Senate as a rare opportunity for Nigeria to get things right in the oil and gas sector.
Senator Sekibo recalled that the Bill was first introduced to the 6th Assembly in 2008 and assured the people of the Niger Delta that he will be their voice and rallying point to ensure justice is done to them.
The Senator said the attempt to break the bill into several aspects with the passage of the governance aspect of the bill became statute barred as the 8th Assembly had elapsed.
“So this indeed is a rare opportunity to set things right for the Nation and the Oil and Gas sector,” Sekibo said.
