Senate President of Nigeria, Ahmed Lawan has implored the Igbo to grap the opportunity avail by President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration to be at
the centre in Nigerian politics.
Lawan said this yesterday at a thanksgiving to commemorate the first anniversary of Governor Hope Uzodimma held at Dan Anyiam Stadium, Owerri in Imo State.
In a statement signed by his spokesman, Ola Awoniyi, and seen by TOS News, said Uzodimma had “achieved so much in one year because he had taken the politics beyond the southeast but to the centre.”
“He doesn’t waste time in looking for opportunity like this and the result is what you see. You have so much interventions. 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 therefore I’ll take this opportunity to appeal to our people in the Southeast: Grab the opportunity to be at the centre of Nigerian politics.
“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’re witnessing here in Imo will be replicated in Ebonyi. We hope by the grace of God, Anambra is coming on board. We’re expecting Abia to be on board. And of course, we’re hoping to bring Enugu on board.
“Nigeria should be a united country where the progressives provide the leadership for this country to be great,” Lawan said.
