House of Representatives Caucus of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has endorsed President Muhammadu Buhari to be sole candidate of the party, for a second term.
The Caucus after a meeting which lasted for hours in the National Assembly on Thursday, through Deputy Speaker of the House, Yusuf Lasun said “we have in principle, endorsed Buhari as our sole candidate for the elections”.
On the blockage of the National Assembly recently by men of the DSS Lasun said as members of the APC in the House, “we condemn what happened, and support the removal of the Director General of the DSS.
It described as unfortunate, the political colouration given Tuesday’s blockage of the National Assembly by masked men of the Department of State Services (DSS).
“We all stand together to defend democracy. When we have an incident like this in the past, our colleagues in the PDP stood with us.
“We are appealing to all, especially our colleagues in the PDP not to use this unfortunate development to malign our party. The APC is not involved, the President is not involved” Majority Leader of the House, Femi Gbajabiamila said.
He said the Caucus has resolved to urge for a thorough investigation into the matter with a view to unraveling ” who is involved”.
