The Chairman of the National Assembly Service Commission (NASC), Mr. Ahmed Kadi Amshi, says the commission has resolved to work for the promotion and coexistence of democratic practices for the collective benefits of Nigeria and Ghana.

Amshi made his position known during the visit of a 10-member delegation from the parliament of Ghana to Nigeria led by its Chairman and former Member of Parliament, Honourable Johnson Asiedu NKetiah.

The Commission’s Chairman expressed delight on the working visit, saying it will affect the two nation’s positively in the area of streamlining, and improving the legislative performance of the lawmakers in both Nigeria and Ghana.

Kadi said the working visit will avail both countries to assess their democratic Institutions and create opportunities established by the bilateral visit to improve and adjust democratic norms, principles and practices.

He said Ghana has a common similarity with Nigeria in all its activities, which ranges from politics and other issues of national discourse, saying this singular synergy is timely and desirable.

Earlier, the Ghana Head of Parliament/Chairman, Johnson Asiedu NKetiah, said the visit to Nigeria is to familiarize with her sister nation and to also rub minds on ways and manner parliamentary services can be improved to meet the current trends, yearnings and expectations.

They promised to explore all legislative and parliamentary efforts towards promoting democracies in line with the best practices the world over.

He promised to sustain such laudable visits that will enhance democracies of both countries in other areas.

The visit, he said, is expected to harmonise and explore modest democratic tenets that will improve on the existing template in the two countries.

The 10-member team also included some parliamentarians as well as Clerk to the Ghanian Parliament, Mr. Camila Pwamang.
