By Signing Pib, Buhari Doesn't Care About The Niger Delta People- Edwin Clark

It’s a bad day for Niger Delta people, says Edwin Clark-led group
The Pan Niger Delta Forum has slammed the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd), for signing the controversial Petroleum Industry Bill 2021 into law without the amendment of certain sections of the Act.

The group led by elder statesman, Chief Edwin Clark, said it is a very “sad and bad day” for Nigeria that despite the overwhelming outcry of the people of the South-South zone, the President still went ahead and signed the PIB into law.

PANDEF had insisted that the equity share must be 10 per cent for host communities and rejected the 3 per cent allocated for host communities in the just signed Petroleum Industry Act.

“It clearly shows the disregard for the feelings and concerns of the Niger Delta people by the Buhari administration,” PANDEF spokesman, Ken Robinson, said in a chat with The PUNCH on Monday.

He spoke minutes after presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina, said Buhari signed the controversial bill into law on Monday.

The PUNCH had earlier reported that in a statement titled, ‘President Buhari Signs Petroleum Industry Bill Into Law’, Adesina said, “Working from home in five days quarantine as required by the Presidential Steering Committee on COVID-19 after returning from London on Friday, August 13, the President assented to the Bill Monday, August 16, in his determination to fulfil his constitutional duty.

“The ceremonial part of the new legislation will be done on Wednesday, after the days of mandatory isolation would have been fulfilled.



“The Petroleum Industry Act provides legal, governance, regulatory and fiscal framework for the Nigerian petroleum industry, the development of host communities, and related matters.
