Deputy Senate President, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, on Thursday, presided over the plenary, his first since the inauguration of the ninth National Assembly in June 2019.
Meanwhile President of the Senate, Ahmad Ibrahim Lawan has disclosed that the National Assembly has started consultation with the Executive arm of government on a new version of the Petroleum Industry Bill to be introduced in the ninth National Assembly.
Lawan made the disclosure during a meeting with representatives of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) who paid a visit to his office at the National Assembly, Abuja.
Representatives on the IMF delegation are: Amine Mati, Senior Resident Representative Mission Chief for Nigeria; Jesmine Raman; Zainab Mangga; Nanrup Ibrahim; Osana Odonye; and Harrison Okafor.
