The lower legislative chamber of the National Assembly on Thursday set up a committee to look into the Petroleum Industry Governance Bill.

The inauguration of the committee came after two hours of debate on three bills related to the PIGB.

The bills specifically touch on governance, host communities and regulatory frameworks which had already passed second reading.

At the inauguration, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, who presided over the proceedings, named the Chief Whip of the lower legislative chamber, Alhassan Ado Doguwa as the committee chairman.
