Speaker of Parliament Alban Bagbin has said that governance institutions in developing countries must prioritise the preservation of institutional experiences and memories.
He believes this is necessary for continuity whiles also ensuring that people have access to accurate historical facts and data.
He made this remark during a courtesy call on his office by a delegation from the Sierra Leonean Parliamentary Service Commission led by Mr. Hassan Abdul Sesay, opposition whip for the Sierra Leonean parliament.
The delegation is in the country among other things to interact with their counterparts here in Ghana, learn best practice and exchange ideas.
The team is hoping to use this visit to create a platform for networking between the parliaments of both countries.
Cardinal among the reasons for their visit was to learn the various schemes and legislations put in place to determine the conditions of service of members retiring from parliament.
