DogaraSpeaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara

Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt Hon Yakubu , has said before the All Progressives Congress (APC) talks about giving President Muhammadu a second term ticket it would weigh its performance first.

​Speaking to newsmen after the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the party​ on Tuesday, he said the party would reviewed how well it has done and what it needs to do in order to deliver on the promises made during campaign.

Dogara said: “I can tell you that after a very illuminating address by the party chairman, the president took turn to address the NEC members and he was very clear in his vision about where we are taking Nigeria​ to.

”​We reminded ourselves about the achievement we have recorded in terms of combating terrorism in the North East, the fight against corruption which is one area where we are doing very well and the exiting from recession and the achievement the party has recorded.

”While we can say we have done quite a lot, there is still much to be done.​ ​The resolve is that we should rededicate ourselves as a party to the service of our people and the only thing that will guarantee our place in this country is the service we render to our people​.

​”Today’s meeting was not about 2019 elections. When we talk about 2019 in the context of the agenda you saw, we are talking about membership registrations, the drive for membership and others. We are not talking about elections.

”Even though there was a motion in the floor that calls for a vote of confidence on the president, some of us felt it was not necessary because there is nowhere that his confidence is shaking. But the motion was taken and passed.”
