Senate President Bukola Saraki has directed the Senate Committee on Petroleum Resources (Downstream) to cut short its recess and immediately convene a meeting with stakeholders in the industries.
This he said was in a bid to end the ongoing fuel crisis and the untold hardship it was presently unleashing on Nigerians.
This was contained in a press statement from Saraki’s Media Office.
Consequently, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Petroleum Resources (Downstream), Sen. Kabiru Marafa, said the committee has invited the Minister of State for Petroleum, Dr Ibe Kachikwu, Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Mr Maikanti Baru and other relevant stakeholders to a crucial meeting on January 4, 2018.
The Senate, which is presently on Christmas and New Year break was billed to resume committee work for budget defence on January 9, and commence plenary on January 16.
