Upon his arrival, the deputy speaker engaged with his counterparts, including the speakers and presiding officers of member countries. He was warmly welcomed by the Speaker of the British House of Commons, Sir Lindsay Hoyle, who also accorded him special attention.

After his presentation, Deputy Speaker Kalu is expected to return to Nigeria on Wednesday.
