The House of Representatives, yesterday, said it has eliminated sentiments and selfishness associated with Petroleum Host and Impacted Communities Development Bill, PHICDB.

The PHICDB, currently before the National Assembly, is seeking to include some northern states among petroleum host and impacted communities, especially those hosting oil and gas facilities like crude oil or petroleum products pipelines passing through them among others. The northern states are captured as ‘impacted communities.’

Speaking in Abuja, at a stakeholders’ conversation around the PHICDB, organized by Order Paper Advocacy Initiative, Chief Whip of the House of Representatives, Mr. Alhassan Doguwa, said the legislators had resolved to jettison personal and sectional interest for national interest and ensure that the final Bill serves the interest of all Nigerians.

He said, “Do not mind the sentiments that might have been involved in the Bill. Of course, you cannot rule out sentiment when it comes to the PHICDB. However, I want to tell that as it is today, we have been able to reduce a lot of sentiments and a lot of selfishness as far as the legislative process is concerned.
