Training Workshop on Strengthening the Capacity of Clerks of Security Committees in the National Assembly on Fostering Inclusive Committee System for Enhanced Policy Legislation

Promoting Democratic and Good Governance

Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS) is cooperating with Nigeria’s House of Representatives’ Committee on Army, and the National Institute for Legislative and Democratic Studies (NILDS) to organize a two-day training workshop for the leadership (Clerks and Deputy Clerks) of committees on the various security agencies in the national parliament (Senate and House of Representatives). The workshop, which is a follow up to previous ones organized by KAS, aims at enhancing the capacity of Clerks and Deputy Clerks on ways of improving the performance of parliamentary committees towards building effective, accountable and inclusive committee system to effectively translate policies into legislation and legislations in policies.


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The workshop also aims at buttressing the knowledge of parliamentary procedures, practices and responsibilities of committee leadership in providing quality support to effective legislation and promote cooperation, collaboration and coordination among the various parliamentary committees. It will also expand opportunities for harmonization of legislative agenda, embed mechanisms for peer review, foster integrated learning and adoption of best practices towards building sustainable consensus. Furthermore, it will help in setting priorities / roadmaps for galvanizing the active engagement of the parliament towards entrenching institutional strengthening and policy legislations that promote good governance, sustainable democracy and multi-sectoral reforms in Nigeria. The workshop is part of Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung’s support to the Security Sector Reform in Nigeria. This program is funded by the Federal Foreign Office of Germany.
