Over 80 lawmakers were at the All Progressives Congress (APC) secretariat on Monday for a consultative session with party executives.
NAN reports that the more than 80 lawmakers, including the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Aminu Tambuwal, had a closed door meeting with APC leaders.
Before the closed door session, the APC Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, said he was delighted to host the Speaker for the first time at the national level.
Describing Tambuwal as an exceptional bridge builder, Odigie-Oyegun said he was impressed at the way the Speaker’s colleagues heralded his coming each time.
“This is the first meeting at the national level that I’m having the pleasure of hosting you as a member of the APC.
“It’s a measure of the mind when your own colleagues treat you like this. You’re an exceptional bridge builder.
“You constructed a coalition for peace among your colleagues as soon as you became Speaker.”
The APC chairman said the party had an infusion of adrenaline and Tambuwal’s arrival brought the latest infusion.
He said the party was leading the nation on a path of salvation and rescue and the meeting was to strategise and consult to ensure that salvation.
