The Nigeria Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (NEITI) has called on the National Assembly to use the opportunity presented by the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB), to ensure uniformity in addressing community problems in mineral producing areas.
Addressing a section of the Senate on the PIB and on the proposed Host Community Fund, the Chairman of NEITI, Mr. Ledum Mitee, urged the lawmakers to take a cue from the existing Minerals and Mining Act, to ensure that host communities were fully involved in the execution of the fund.
He said: “NEITI believes that the preferred option is for the communities to be directly impacted by the funds through a process which pertains in the minerals sector in Nigeria, whereby the communities enter into an agreement with licensee or lease-holder, as the case may be, and agree as to terms and conditions regarding the fund.”
