“We have been invited, I will talk to my fellow MPs during coming session to discuss the matter on whether we go or not,” he said.
“APU is a voluntary organisation and is led by Guinea Bissau National Assembly Speaker Cipriano Cassama.
It aims particularly to bring together the parliamentary institutions of all African states to encourage contacts among African Parliamentarians and contribute to the promotion of democracy.
Meanwhile, Speaker Nduagai who was abroad for a one month official visit said Parliament is tired of legislators who misbehave in Parliament.
He said, however, that the Parliament was not mandated to take actions when MPs misbehave outside the Parliament.
“We are tired with legislators’ indiscipline during Parliamentary sessions, especially as this deny their colleagues the right to participate comfortably in the proceedings in the august House,” he said.
