19 February 2014, Abuja – One year after mandating the Joint Committee on Petroleum (Upstream, Downstream) and Gas to carry out further legislation on controversial Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB), the Senate Wednesday ordered the committee to henceforth conclude legislation on the bill and return it to the chamber for prompt passage.

Senate President David Mark while giving the marching order Wednesday also asked the Joint Committee on Finance and Upstream Petroleum which had been mandated to investigate the Malabu Oil deal since July last year to expedite action and report findings to the chamber for prompt consideration.
