CPC urges Nigerian lawmakers to pass Petroleum Industry Bill, PIB


The CPC said the passage would create an enabling environment for the sector.

The Congress for Progressive Change, CPC, on Wednesday in Abuja advised the National Assembly to pass the Petroleum Industry Bill, PIB, into law.

The Deputy National Chairman of CPC, Mustapher Saliu, said that its passage would create an enabling environment for the sector.

He said the CPC is ready to advocate and support any measure that can bring positive change to the entire country.

Mr. Saliu also commended the All Progressives Congress, APC, merger committee and the leadership of the merging parties for their efforts.

He said it was by the combined efforts of the stakeholders that made APC to satisfy the necessary conditions to apply for registration as a political party.

Mr. Saliu said that APC was ready to address Nigeria’s problems, to give necessary fillip to economic and political development of the country, if eventually registered to contest in the 2015 elections. He said that APC would offer better opportunities to Nigeria and alternative to insecurity and other corrupt practices.

The politician expressed optimism that Nigeria would be greater if all the citizens could display discipline and transparency in all the sectors of national economy.
