Gbajabiamila seeks improved parliamentary relations with Ghana

The Speaker House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, and the new Speaker of the Ghanaian Parliament, Mr. Albert Bagbin, have agreed to strengthen parliamentary relations in a bid to find lasting solutions to challenges such as the trade dispute involving some Nigerian traders in Ghana.

The two speakers reached out to each other during a zoom meeting they held where Gbajabiamila told his counterpart that the two countries were like siblings and should continue to explore the avenue of parliamentary diplomacy in addressing shared challenges, adding that there was much both could learn from each other.

The Nigerian Speaker also explained a project he initiated with five other African Speakers, including the Conference of Speakers of African Parliaments (CoSAP), which advocated for debt relief and that this year, African Speakers and Heads of Parliaments were expected to gather in Abuja to explore how they could work better together to tackle collective challenges.

While congratulating the Ghanaian Speaker for his success at the recently contested polls, Gbajabiamila said he looked forward to working closely with him.
