The Governor of Abia State, Dr Okezie Victor has expressed deep sadness at the news of the passage onto eternal glory of the President General of Ohaneze Ndigbo, Professor George Obiozor.
Governor Ikpeazu remembers Professor Obiozor as a ranking member of the global academic community, a world acclaimed Professor of International Relations, Diplomat of the finest grade, Nigeria’s former Ambassador to the United States of America and President General of Ohaneze Ndigbo Worldwide.
According to Governor Ikpeazu, “the death of Professor Obiozor has robbed Igbo land of one of her most illustrious sons. He was clearly one of our most powerful men global diplomatic level. Our decision to support his emergence as President General of Ohaneze Ndigbo Worldwide was based squarely on his pedigree and integrity. His death is even more painful coming at a time like this when the Igbo nation still grapples with issues around leadership and our place in a united Nigeria”.
“Professor Obiozor left imperishable legacies and indelible footprints on the sands of time. He will be sorely missed. We are consoled by the fact that his place in our history is assured”.
On behalf of the Government and People of Abia State, Governor Ikpeazu sends his deep condolences to the family of the Late Professor and indeed the entire Igbo nation.
