Abuja - The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, on Wednesday urged politicians to avoid early campaign for positions in 2019.
Rather, he advised that they should cooperate with the Buahri administration to move the country forward.
Dogara gave the advice when the Presidential Primaries Convention Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC), visited him in Abuja.
"We have to rally round with all the tools we can get, to make this government a success.
"We cannot fail our people and that is why I fault those who are already having their eyes on 2019," Dogara said.
He stressed that the preoccupation of the lawmakers and the party members should be the wellbeing of the country.

"Please reach out to Reresentative Femi Gbajabiamila and the party in the true spirit of humility and sportsmanship," Ideh advised.
He said a strong cooperation between the National Assembly and the Presidency would speed up development in the country.
