This will enable Nigerian citizens to start benefitting from fully funded programmes in the areas of conflict resolution, tolerance, and peace building in universities around the world. The MoU will also enable Nigerian parliamentarians to benefit from short training programmes sponsored by the IPTP.

Ahead of the plenary, however, the lawmaker participated in the Bureau Meeting of the leadership of the parliament and also chaired a meeting of the Committee on Legal and Legislative matters, which he heads.
