Akpabio calls for deeper Parliamentary cooperation with Serbia

President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio has called for parliamentary cooperation between Serbia and Nigeria.

He made the call during a meeting with the President of the Serbian Parliament, Ms Ana Brnabic on Wednesday in London.

In a statement which was issued by the Senate President’s Special Assistant on Media, Jackson Udom, both leaders discussed extensively issues of mutual interest to both nations and how to improve parliamentary collaborations between Serbia and Nigeria.

“The Meeting, which was at the request of Ms Brnabić, also discussed matters relating to the International Parliamentary Union(IPU). The two parliamentarians have also agreed to meet again soon. The Serbian lawmaker used the meeting to formally invite Nigeria’s Senate President to Serbia, on a yet-to-be-announced date,” the statement said.

Senator Akpabio was recently elected into the Executive Committee of the IPU, a role he has been playing successfully in the last few months, specifically his thought-provoking speech on the needless bloodletting in Gaza, and the call for a cease-fire at the just concluded meeting of the body in Geneva, Switzerland.

Akpabio, the release added, was accompanied to the meeting by the Chairman of the Senate Committee on NDDC, Asuquo Ekpenyong and Nigeria’s Acting High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, Cyprian Terseer Heens.
