Majority Leader and Leader of the Gambia delegation to ECOWAS Parliament,  Kebba Barrow in the wake of Community lawmakers crusading for Supplementary Act to be strengthened to make the Parliament more effective, said it is not in the interest of the ECOWAS Parliament and the Commission to be seen struggling for power and relevance.

According to the leader, both institutions should see themselves as colleagues in development and rather see what they can do through dialogue.

“Because the Commission is a technocrat and the Parliamentarians are technicians, MPs are able to talk to the people at the grass root level and we are able to get the message down at the right time to the people for them to understand the protocols and all that is being done at level of the Commission”.
