Stakeholders in Nigeria’s Delta state have urged President Muhammadu Buhari not to ratify the Petroleum Industry Governance Bill, Nigerian newspaper The Guardian has reported.

Critics have cautioned against the intended breakup of Nigerian National Petroleum Corp., saying it would lead to a loss of profits that would risk unrest in the Delta, the country’s main hydrocarbon-producing region.
