Group canvasses support for Obiozor as Ohanaeze PG
South East Revival Group (SERG) has declared support for Ambassador George Obiozor to emerge as President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo.
President and National Coordinator of the pan-Igbo socio-political pressure group, Chief Willy Ezugwu, urged all Igbo to unanimously throw their weight behind the former diplomat.
The group stated: “Looking at the local and international pedigree of Ambassador George Obiozor, a professor and diplomat of unimpeachable character, Ndigbo should not search further for the next President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide.
“As former Nigerian Ambassador to Israel (1999-2003) and the United States (2004-2008), he has enough clout for the job at this very important time in the history of Ndigbo.
“Also, Obiozor served as the director general of the Nigerian Institute of International Affairs (NIIA) and the High Commissioner to Cyprus.”
SERG described him as a statesman who understands both Nigerian and international politics.
“He has the needed capacity to strike a balance between national interest and the needs of the Igbo-speaking people worldwide, especially as Ndigbo reposition for the presidency in 2023.
“Thus far, in view of the quest to produce the Nigerian president of South East extraction, our search for a credible and acceptable Ohanaeze leader stopped at the doorsteps of Obiozor.
“We believe that with his exposure, he will carry all Igbo leaders along in his administration and will not thread on the selfish path of some leaders before him,” SERG stated.
