PWYP Nigeria pushes President for reform in extractives

Blogs and News

A new campaign by PWYP Nigeria, together with wider civil society in Nigeria, is urging new President Buhari to push through the long awaited Petroleum Industry Bill within his first 100 days in office. Despite being a resource rich country, Nigeria hasn’t benefited from a well-governed oil and gas sector but instead has been plagued by corruption and mismanagement.

The bill seeks to clean up the sector and could play an important role in increasing opportunities for economic growth in the country through openness, competition and transparency. The call for the bill was made in a communique, accessible here, by PWYP Nigeria and other civil society groups after a five day workshop to build capacities in the Nigerian oil and gas sector. Join them in convincing President Buhari to push for the adoption of the bill on Twitter.
