The Senate has moved to invite the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, and other stakeholders to brief the relevant Senate committees on the award of 9.6 billion dollars by a U.K. court to P&ID. Mr. Malami is to explain to the Senate, what the Federal Government’s team is doing to resolve the matter.
He is expected to appear before the Senate committees on Judiciary, Petroleum Upstream and Gas.

The meeting follows the award of the fine of $9.6 billion against Nigeria by a British Court following a botched oil deal with the company. Others members of the delegation include the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed; the Inspector General of Police, Abubakar Adamu; AIG Ibrahim Lamorde and the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Ibrahim Magu.
