The Senate, today, suspended further consideration of the report on the National Roads Fund Establishment Bill, asking the Committee on Works to make “further consultations” on it.

The report which was earlier submitted by the committee specifically recommends a N5 levy on every litre of fuel and diesel imported or refined in the country.

Several lawmakers who spoke on the recommendations, expressed their reservations after the bill (report) had generated public outcry within the past week. 

It was finally agreed that the panel should review the report.
