PIB Will Resolve Development Challenges In N/Delta – Wike
Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, said that the Petroleum Industry Bill when passed and diligently implemented will resolve majority of the developmental and environmental challenges facing oil producing communities.
Governor Wike also urged the House of Representatives Ad-Hoc Committee on Petroleum Industry Bill to ensure that it tackles critical issues on the bill comprehensively to avoid further crisis when the House passes the legislation.
Wike who spoke yesterday at Government House Port Harcourt during an interactive session with the House of Representatives Ad-Hoc Committee on Petroleum Industry Bill, said, “Our people have suffered so much. When people don’t understand what we experience, they criticize needlessly. This bill will cure a lot of environmental challenges in the Niger Delta.”
In his remark, Chairman of the committee, Honourable Alhassan Doguwa, said to avoid the mistakes of the past, the House of Representatives was working in synergy with the Senate to ensure early passage of the bill.
