OrderPaperToday – The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, on Thursday, announced the creation of a host community committee, among two others.
The creation of the committee is seen as instructive in addressing the agitations of mineral producing areas of the country.
Host Community is an integral part of the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB) which is currently before the National Assembly.
Although the bill is still an ongoing legislative process, Gbajabimaila announced the creation of the committee as part of a commitment to the passage of the bill.
It would be recalled that House on the 25th of November passed the PIB through second reading.
Gbajabiamila also announced the creation of disability and research institutes committees.
