BREAKING: National Assembly Passes PIGB
The bill was passed after Donald Alasodura, senator representing Ondo central, presented a conference committee report on the bill.
The two chambers of the national assembly set up the conference committee after the house of representatives passed theirs on January 17.
It is expected to be sent to President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday for his assent.
If signed into law, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) will be unbundled and will start running like proper business units.
The lawmakers had earlier promised to harmonise the PIGB passed by both houses on March 28 and present to President Muhammadu Buhari for assent on March 30.
