  • SOURCE: | qwesa2big
  • The National Assembly has been urged to enact a Petroleum Industry Law to establish lasting mechanisms for comprehensive oversight of the oil and gas industry.

    A coalition of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) including Zero Corruption Coalition (ZCC), Publish What You Pay-Nigeria (PWYP-Nigeria) and Say No Campaign -Nigeria (SCN) gave the charge in Abuja while reacting to Nigeria’s ‘Weak’ overall rating by the 2013 Resource Governance Index (RGI). Spokesmen of ZCC, Auwal Musa Rafsanjani; SNC, Ezenwa Nwagwu and PWYP -Nigeria, Babatunde Adegbesan, were also unanimous in asking the federal lawmakers to require similar briefing from the Minister of the Ministry of Mines and Steel Development.
