The role of the fourth and Ninth Nigerian National Assembly in inter-parliamentary diplomacy

ABSTRACT

This study critically examines the role of the fourth and ninth Nigerian National Assembly in inter- parliamentary diplomacy. Using historical method, the paper established that the re-entry of the National Assembly into the global parliamentary circle following Nigeria’s return to democracyin 1999 was critical in the realization of certain foreign policy objectives. These include: the restoration of Nigeria
’s image; improved confidence in Nigeria’s democracy; enhanced bargaining power in the campaign for external debt relief; influenced the domestication ofimportant international treaties; and engendered the National Assembly to support laudable sub-regional peace initiatives. The paper concludes that the Nigeria’s National Assembly must further strengthen its participation in inter parliamentary assemblies so that Nigeria canmaximize benefits from her foreign policy commitments
