PIA: Senate Issues Final Notice Of Appearance To NUPRC Boss

The Senate Committee on Oil & Gas Host Communities has issued a final notice of appearance to the Chief Executive of the Nigerian Upstream Petroleum Regulatory Commission (NUPRC), Mr. Gbenga Komolafe.

The Committee says Mr. Komolafe has snubbed its previous invitations for an interface on the matters bordering on the implementation challenges of the Petroleum Industry Act (PIA) and the pressing need to address the grievances of host communities.

In a statement, Chairman of the Committee, Senator Benson Agadaga, said that Mr. Komolafe’s refusal to engage with the Senate Committee reflected a lack of accountability and commitment to the welfare of the Nigerian people.

While calling on the NUPRC to reconsider its stance and honour the invitation to appear before the committee, Senator Agadaga stressed that failure to do so will only deepen public mistrust and fuel the flames of discontent that threatens to engulf the nation’s collective progress.
