PIB: Whether 3% or 5% to host communities, I care less, what’s the wellbeing of the people? Nasarawa Gov

Nasarawa State Governor, Abdullahi Sule, has faulted the debate over the Petroleum Industry Bill allocation for oil-producing states.

Governor Sule stated this when he appeared as a guest on Channels TV’s Sunday Politics.

He stated that beyond figures or percentages, what matters more is the wellbeing of the states involved.

“You have to look at the totality of what goes to the communities,” he said.

“Is it just the three percent that is going to them? People have forgotten about the 13% derivation that goes to the states.


“So even if you give the three percent or five percent is it changing the communities or is it going to some private pockets,” he asked.
