The chairman gave the commendation on Thursday at a meeting between the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) members and APC caucus in the House at the National Assembly complex.

Fielding questions from journalists after the about three-hour meeting, he said the leadership of the party was impressed with the performance of the lawmakers and that the visit was to commend them.

Odigie-Oyegun said that the House under the leadership of Mr Yakubu Dogara as speaker had been very supportive of the Federal Government and deserved to be appreciated.

He disclosed that the meeting also discussed the level of consideration of the 2017 Appropriations Bill before the National Assembly.

“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 speaker and members,” he said.

The APC chairman also confirmed that the party members in the House were indebted on subscription and other dues and commended them for their show of loyalty.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), however, gathered that the loan request from Buhari still before the National Assembly were some of the key issues discussed at the meeting.

NAN also learnt that party loyalty also featured prominently at the meeting with the NWC members seeking the understanding of the lawmakers on party supremacy.

Some of the NWC members that accompanied the chairman to the meeting were National Auditor, Chief George Moghalu, National Organizing Secretary, Sen. Osita Izunaso and the National Publicity Secretary, Malam Bolaji Abdullahi.
