Ohanaeze needs worthy new leadership to succeed Obiozor, says group
A group of Igbo professionals and businessmen, under the auspices of Umunna Lekki Association (ULA), has said that for Nigeria to be great and sustained, there should be cohesiveness among its divers groups.
The group also noted that the apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, should elect credible and worthy new leadership to succeed its late President General, Prof. George Obiozor.
While expressing its condolences to Ohanaeze in a statement, ULA harped on the much needed peace and progress in the South East, as well as across the country. The group noted that to achieve this objective, efforts should, first, be channeled towards ensuring united and stronger Ohanaeze, which would continue the vision of the organisation.
The statement, issued by the group’s President, Ikem Ume-Ezeoke, described late Obiozor, who was the 10th Ohanaeze President General, as an epitome of hard work, a worthy ambassador and protector of Igbo collective interest, and whose death is a great loss to the Igbo nation.
