“The House caucus on our own decided to pass a vote-of-confidence in Mr. President and also endorse him for second term.”

When asked whether the President accepted the endorsement, she simply said, “We did the endorsement and we are urging him to run for second term.”

When asked why Tambuwal was not at the meeting, the House Leader said the Speaker should speak for himself.

“I am sure when you see Mr. Speaker, you will ask him, this is a PDP meeting, obviously he will have his reasons why he was not at the meeting,” she said.

She said security issues were also discussed at the meeting and the government was commended for efforts to restore peace to parts of the country.
