All appears set as the 2022 Conference of Speakers of State Legislatures of Nigeria, led by the Chairman, Rt Hon Abubakar Suleiman, will embark on seven days legislative processes in government and capacity programs in Canada to further enhance and strengthen the capacity of the lawmakers.
The visit, under the aegis of the Conference of Speakers of State Legislatures of Nigeria, (CSSL), will also afford the attendees the opportunity to interface with top Canadian government officials and lawmakers with a view to tapping from their wealth of experience on governance and law-making processes.
According to the Coordinator and Executive Director, OZ Consulting Firm, Abi Goodman, in a statement said the program is put together in conjunction with its partners Hon Jim Karygiannis, GTA Strategies, and David Murchison of the Institute of Governance, noted that “the International engagement will also see the lawmakers exchange ideas on the Canadian Judicial System and Electoral process”.
Portion of the statement reads, “The Institute on Governance’s two-day learning program for the Delegation of Nigerian Legislators will provide a learning opportunity on the legislative processes in government in Canada.
“The learning program will start on September 19, 2022 and will focus on providing an overview of Canada’s Westminster Model of Government, Canada’s Orders of Government and Government Accountability.
