The House of Representatives chambers a couple of minutes ago was in turmoil as representatives, split along partisan loyalties, are debating the new deregulation of the oil sector and the expulsion of oil subsidy that has prompted the expansion of the pump price of petrol from N86.50 to N145 per liter.

The officials are expecting the Minister of state for Petroleum assets, Ibe Kachikwu, who they have summoned to show up before them to clarify the purpose for the late removal of oil subsidy.
