The Nigerian Senate President, Ahmad Lawan has told leaders of the South-East region to move to the centre of Nigerian politics.
Lawan who said this during a thanksgiving ceremony to commemorate Uzodimma’s first anniversary as governor, stated that the Imo state Governor has achieved so much in one year because he took his politics beyond the South-East.
“Let me say the presence of the Vice President, representing the President, and all the governors here is a very clear testimony of his (government’s) relationship with the centre of Nigeria.
“He doesn’t waste time looking for an opportunity like this and the result is what you see.
“He has achieved so much in one year because he does not play his politics only in the Southeast.
“He has taken his politics to the centre as well and I will take this opportunity to appeal to our people in the Southeast: grab the opportunity to be at the centre of Nigerian politics.
“The All Progressives Congress (APC) administration of President Muhammadu Buhari is so willing, so liberal and forthcoming to support every part of Nigeria to make sure that Nigeria is evenly developed.
“So, what we are witnessing here in Imo will be replicated in Ebonyi. We hope by the grace of God, Anambra is coming on board.
“We are expecting Abia to be on board. And of course, we are hoping to bring Enugu on board.
“Nigeria should be a united country where the progressives provide the leadership for this country to be great.”
