Governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress have commended President Muhammadu Buhari for signing the Petroleum Industry Bill into law.

This was contained in a statement titled ‘Petroleum Industry Act: Democratically Changing Nigeria, ‘ signed by the Chairman, Progressives Governors Forum, and Kebbi State Governor, Atiku Bagudu, in Abuja, on Wednesday.

“On Monday, August 16, 2021, Mr. President, His Excellency, Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR assented to the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB) and by so doing restructure the operations and management of the Nigerian oil and gas industry.
