Leaders of both chambers of the Nigerian National Assembly want tougher measures against oil thieves in the country, calling the act treasonable.

Ahmed Lawan— President of the Senate, and Femi Gbajabiamila— Speaker of the House of Representatives, said this on Friday at the presentation of President Muhammadu Buhari's 2023 budget to the National Assembly.

According to the lawmakers, a severe punishment will put an end to oil theft, which they said is one of the main causes of economic challenges in the country.

Both leaders also called for accountability from government agencies, ministries and departments, noting that laws governing the accounting process must be followed.
