President Buhari Writes Senate, Seeks Amendments To Petroleum Industry Act.

President Muhammadu Buhari has also asked the Senate to amend the petroleum industry act (PIA) 2021.
Buhari, who made the request in a letter read by the Senate President,  Ahmad Lawan, during plenary, explained that his proposal became necessary to review the administrative structure of both the  Nigerian midstream and downstream petroleum regulatory authority, as well as the Nigerian upstream regulatory commission.

He, however, listed the three areas of the act to be amended as the appointment of non-executive board members, removal of the ministries of petroleum resources and finance from the boards of the two institutions, as well as the appointment of executive directors.
