Expert urges NASS to Pass PIB in segments
Members of the National Assembly have been advised to segment the Petroleum Industry Bill PIB, to enable it to be passed in instalments, in order to ensure easy implementation, when passed into law
A university don and legal practitioner who specializes in energy law, oil and gas practice, Dr. Samuel Chisa Dike, who gave the advice while speaking to our correspondent in Port Harcourt, called for the speedy passage of the PIB.
Dike who is a Lecturer of Oil and Gas Laws in the Department of Public Law, Faculty of Law, Rivers State University, RSU, said the PIB was so loaded with big ideas, particularly in the gas sector. He explained that the PIB was so bogus a document, expressing fears that its implementation would be difficult, hence the need for the Bill to be passed in segments.
