Nigeria's House of Representatives has passed the Petroleum Industry Governance Bill (PIGB). The PIGB is the first of the component parts of the old Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB) which has undergone series of re-drafting and extensive legislative considerations without successful passage into law since 2008.
The Senate had earlier passed the PIGB on 25 May 2017. The next step is to harmonise the Bill and present to the President for assent.
