ADVERTS FROM HEAVEN? FG to spend N6.2 billion on Petroleum Industry Bill publicity

Although the awareness began in 2010, it is expected to run until 2015.

The  figures show  that the sum of N110.87m has been released and expended so far, leaving a balance of N6.09bn.

Although N17.23m was earmarked for the project in 2012, details of the expenditure was not included in the document.
