PDP Reps endorse Jonathan for 2015

Members of the People Democratic Party (PDP) in the House of Representatives yesterday endorsed President Goodluck Jonathan to run for the 2015 election. But Speaker Aminu Tambuwal was absent at the meeting. Addressing State House correspondents at the Presidential Villa in Abuja after the meeting with the President, House Leader Mulikat Adeola-Akande said the caucus passed a vote of confidence on Jonathan. She said: “We are the PDP Caucus of the House of Representatives. A meeting like this is not strange because we met with the President, who is our leader. “We deliberated on issues affecting our party. The House Caucus, on our own, decided to pass a vote of confidence on Mr. President and also endorse him for second term.” On whether or not the President accepted, she said: “We did the endorsement and we are urging him to run for second term.” On Tambuwal’s absence, Adeola-Akande said: “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.” The House Leader said security issues were also discussed at the meeting and the government received kudos for efforts to restore peace in trouble spots of the country.
