President Muhammadu Buhari has reiterated that Nigeria will keep pledges made to the ECOWAS Parliament, and to the sub-regional body at large.

The President made this known at the State House, Abuja, while receiving a team from ECOWAS Parliament, led by the speaker, Dr Sidie Mohammed Tunis.

He commended the Parliament for planning to fill its positions subsequently through elections, which would be incorporated into general elections of member countries, noting that it would be cost effective.

On the construction of a Parliament building in Abuja, President Buhari said he was pleased that the body was collaborating with the minister of federal capital territory.

The speaker, Tunis expressed sympathy to the Government and people of Nigeria on the recent losses from terror attacks; saying Nigeria was resilient to defeat the terrorists.

He also applauded Nigeria for its many supports to the ECOWAS Parliament, informing that the plan is now to strengthen the body through electing its officials rather than their being appointed.

He added that the vision for a Parliament building in Abuja is that it would be completed before May, 2023, so that President Buhari would commission it before leaving office.
