More Sad News For Bukola Saraki’s Senate, As 4 Of President Buhari’s Top Appointees Fail To Show Up, Dump Senate Invitation In The Dirty Gutters

Senate President, Bukola Saraki, on Monday, protested the shunning of a public hearing by the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, and Finance Minister, Kemi Adeosun.

The Senate Joint Committee on the Petroleum Industry Bill, PIB, chaired by Senator Kabir Marafa (APC, Zamfara), had invited the Ministers at a public hearing on three bills on the Petroleum industry, but they were absent.
Declaring the hearing open, Saraki stated that it was unfortunate that the Ministers were not in attendance.
Marafa, after calling the roll call of stakeholders in attendance, revealed that the Ministers were formally invited to make contributions at the public hearing.
Aside the Ministers, the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Godwin Emefiele, and the Accountant-General of the Federation, Ahmed Idris, were not also in attendance.
Marafa said: “It is quite unfortunate that we are talking about these serious bills without these people. I hope it is not one of those things that we are witnessing.
“We have extended invitations to them. If we do not see any changes by tomorrow, we will communicate this to the President. He is the Minister of Petroleum, and he is interested in these bills. We will give them till tomorrow (today)”, he said.
On the bill, Saraki said that the three new PIBs being considered by the Senate, will boost economic growth, and lead to a more efficient oil sector that is globally competitive.
