The chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, has led members of the party on a ‘thank you’ visit to Speaker Yakubu Dogara.
The party chieftains visited Dogara late Thursday, March 23 commending him for his loyalty and support for the federal government led by President Muhammadu Buhari.
The Nigerian Television Authority reports that while speaking to journalists after a closed-door meeting with the lawmakers, Oyegun confirmed that the House of Representatives under Dogara had been very supportive of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration and deserved to be appreciated.
The meeting between the APC leaders and Dogara lasted two hours.
Aside the commendation, Oyegun said the progress of the 2017 appropriation bill was also discussed. The budget is yet to be passed.
“As you can see we are all smiling. We discussed general issues; the budget and the progress it is making.
“The fact that the House has been very supportive of the government and the party, we congratulate the Rt Hon Speaker and members for the way so far they have been behind federal government and the party,” he said.
