Senate Seeks Better Approach To Managing Oil Spill
The Senate has re-affirmed its commitment to protecting the lives of Nigerians by enacting laws that add value to the daily needs of every citizen.
This is especially those needs that are impacted by the activities in the oil and gas sector.
Chairman of the Senate committee on environment, Senator Olurenmi Tinubu re-echoed this on Tuesday at a one-day public hearing on the amendment of the Bill establishing the Oil spill detection and response Agency Act, 2006.
The Bill, which established the National Oil Spill Detection and Response Agency (NOSDRA), seeks to expand the responsibility of NOSDRA beyond oil spill and detection alone, and to strengthen it to perform all its statutory functions.
