President Buhari promises to sign Petroleum Industry Governance Bill

President Muhammadu Buhari says he was committed to Nigeria’s reform, saying he would assent to the Petroleum Industry Governance Bill, PIGB, as soon as the National Assembly presented it to him.

The president, who spoke at the 40th anniversary of the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers, NUPENG, in Abuja, said when the bill becomes law, it would address most of the challenges facing the oil and gas industry.

Represented by Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, Buhari appealed to the workers to support his government towards ensuring better welfare for them.

While commending the workers for the progress made so far in the sector, Buhari sought dialogue as alternative to their well-known practice of shutting down the country while in dispute with their employers.
