The ruling All Progressives Congress APC has hailed President Muhammadu Buhari for signing the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB) 2021 into law as passed by the National Assembly, saying he has again shown courage by ending the long jinx which has seen the PIB delayed since early 2000s.
National Secretary of the APC Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee CECPC, Senator John James Akpanudoedehe disclosed this in a statement issued on Tuesday in Abuja.
Part of the statement reads; “The new Petroleum Industry Act may not be a perfect document. No law anywhere in the world is a finished product. It is a good way to start, after decades of groping in the dark in the oil industry. Mr. President has broken the jinx on many fronts, this is a clear demonstration of the will of a leader, determined to do the right thing. We salute the President’s forthrightness and his courage to lead Nigeria aright”.
The Party also hails the leadership of the National Assembly, federal lawmakers, public and private stakeholders in the petroleum industry as well as petroleum host communities for their cooperation which ensured the PIB’s successful legislative passage and subsequent presidential assent.
