Nigerian Senate move to stop FRSC’s sale of speed limit device

The Senate yesterday began moves to stop the sale of speed limit devices to vehicle owners by the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC).

Consequently, it mandated its committee on Federal Character and Inter-Governmental Affairs, to look into the matter, to ensure that it did not add to the hardship currently being experienced by Nigerians and report back to it.

This is sequel to a point of order raised by Senator Dino Melaye (APC, Kogi West).

Melaye said the introduction of the policy would further make life difficult for Nigerians who are already having a hard time coping with the impact of the present recessed economy.

Worried by the brewing crisis in the Niger Delta, the Senate also resolved to launch a comprehensive investigation into the circumstances leading to the funding constraints of the Presidential Amnesty Programme.

It equally asked the Finance Ministry to release the balance of N15 billion left in the 2016 budget for the programme.

Adopting a motion sponsored by Senator Peter Nwaoboshi, the Upper Legislative Chamber equally mandated its Niger Delta committee to investigate the alleged swapping of names in the list of beneficiaries.

Also yesterday, the Senate received the report of the Joint Committees on Petroleum Upstream, Downstream and Gas on the Petroleum Industry Governance Bill, 2017.

Among the key aspects of the Bill is the unbundling the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) to create a window for further development in the petroleum industry.

The report was presented three months behind the January deadline given by Senate President Bukola Saraki.
