Nigeria's petroleum bill to be passed by mid-2020 -oil minister

ABUJA, Feb 10 (Reuters) - Nigeria will pass its Petroleum Industry Bill by mid-2020, Minister of Petroleum Timipre Sylva said on Monday, the latest assurance that the legislation would be enacted after nearly two decades of wrangling.

"We are on the same page as the National Assembly," he said, referring to Nigeria's parliament, adding that he hoped international oil majors were also on board. (Reporting by Libby George; Writing by Paul Carsten; editing by Louise Heavens)
