The Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr Ahmed Wase (APC-Plateau), has been sworn in as the first Deputy Speaker of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Parliament.

The swearing-in was performed by the Speaker of the Parliament, Hon. Moustapha Cisse Lo, at the opening of the second extra-ordinary session of the Parliament in Monrovia, Republic of Liberia.

This was contained in a statement issued by his spokesman, Mr Umar Puma, and made available to newsmen in Abuja.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Wase replaced the Ex-Deputy Speaker, Mr Yusuf Lasun, who did not seek re-election to the Nigerian House of Representatives after the end of his tenure.

In his response after the swearing in, Wase promised to join hands with his colleagues in the Parliament to work towards the integration of the sub-region.

Wase thanked his colleagues for the confidence reposed in him, assuring that he would bring his wealth of experience in the Nigerian House of Representatives to bear on the sub-regional parliament.

“I am grateful to my honourable colleagues for unanimously adopting me as the First Deputy Speaker of the ECOWAS Parliament.
