Pan-African Parliament President, Chief Sen. Fortune Charumbira, has called for unity and cooperation among members, urging them to put aside divisive behavior and work together.

Charumbira made the remarks during the 3rd Ordinary Session of the 6th Parliament of the Pan-African Parliament in Midrand, South Africa, where members debated the Performance and Annual Budget Report presented by the President.

Charumbira emphasized the need for quality debate and decorum, saying, “Actions speak louder than words. We need to be more focused. Let’s have dignified debates, not political posturing.” He encouraged members to praise and criticize constructively, moving forward in a positive direction.

PAP Second Vice President, Dr. Ashiru W. Gayo, echoed Charumbira’s sentiments, promising to work cooperatively with the President and the Bureau. “After all our differences, we are now united. Personally, I work with PAP President, Sen. Chief F. Charumbira. He is our President, and we stand guided by him. Count on us,” Dr. Gayo said.

The remarks and debate marked a significant step forward for the PAP, with all members moving to adopt the motion and unite behind the President’s call for cooperation and progress.
