Nigeria and the Republic of South Korea have pledged to strengthen the economic, parliamentary and socio-political relationship between the two countries.
According to an accord reached by Presidential Special Envoy from South Korea led by Senator Lee Ju-Young to the inauguration of President Muhammadu Buhari and Nigeria’s Senate President, David Mark, in Abuja, the parliaments of both nations would facilitate the bilateral cooperation.
Chief Press Secretary to the Senate President, Paul Mumeh in a statement, said Mark specifically appreciated the international community for the solidarity and support on the smooth transfer of power from former President Goodluck Jonathan-led Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) administration to Buhari’s All Progressives Congress (APC).
He restated that Nigeria and Nigerians have embraced democracy as the best form of government and are prepared to defend its course.
He added that on account of this development, the nation resolved to strengthen all the democratic institutions, including but not limited to the National Assembly and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
