Showdown! House of Reps Summon Petroleum Minister, Kachikwu in a Special Session Today

National Assembly, Abuja
The House of Representatives at the National Assembly in the nation's capital, has convened a special session with Minister of State for Petroleum, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu today! Some Nigerian lawmakers including Ahmed Kaita and Akeem Adeyemi, have exclusively disclosed to Premium Times that the House of Representatives has convened a special session at which Minister of State for Petroleum, Ibe Kachikwu, will interact with the lawmakers over the new premium motor spirit (PMS) price regime hiked to N145 lask week.
It was gathered that the special session is slated for today, Monday, 16th May, at 12:00noon – a shift from its regular schedule of plenary which holds Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays starting.
Ahead of Kachikwu’s meeting with the House, Kaita revealed that 'about 68' APC lawmakers had been meeting since Saturday to ensure support for the new policy from the National Assembly end.
However, a PDP lawmaker who does not want to be named said his party caucus would 'criticise and oppose' the new policy to 'let Nigerians see the hardship brought on them by the APC and Buhari.'
