Lawan spoke on Sunday at the thanksgiving which held at Dan Anyiam Stadium, Owerri in Imo State to commemorate the one year in office of Governor Hope Uzodimma.
The Senate President said Governor Uzodimma had achieved so much in one year because he had taken the politics beyond the Southeast but to the centre.
“Today, we are celebrating one year of his Governorship in Imo State. The National Assembly is here. Let me say the presence of the Vice President, representing the President, and all the Governors here is a very clear testimony of his relationship with the centre of Nigeria.
“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 will take this opportunity to appeal to our people in the Southeast: Grab the opportunity to be at the center 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.”
