A coalition of civil society organizations on Thursday urged government to ensure that the Petroleum Exploration and Production Bill and Marine Pollution Bill, which are before Parliament, are revised for the good of the nation.

According to the coalition although the current Bill is an improvement upon PNDC Law 84, as it encourages open tender in the award of petroleum contracts, the portion which arrogates power to the sector Minister to single handedly award contacts in some instance without giving reasons is a recipe for corruption in the near future.

The coalition members include the Centre for Public Interest Law (CEPIL), Friends of the Nation (FoN) and the Western Region branch of the Ghana National Canoe and Fishermen?s Council.
