The All Progressives Congress has congratulated former Nigerian Ambassador to the United States, Prof. George Obiozor, on his election as the new President-General of the apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaézè Ndígbo.
The party in a release signed by its National Secretary, Caretaker Committee, also congratulated the outgoing Chief John Nwodo executive for its mature and patriotic leadership of Ohanaézè Ndígbo.
APC said, “Going by his distinguished service to the nation, Obiozor’s experience and suitability for the strategic position of President-General of Ohanaézè Ndígbo is not in doubt. The Party hereby urges Ndigbo to support Obiozor to fulfil the mandate of the organisation.
“The APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee under the leadership of Governor Mai Mala Buni is determined to consolidate on the ongoing efforts to further mainstream the South East geo-political zone in the workings of the governing APC and place the zone in its deserved political standing in the country.
“While the APC is ready to partner and work with the new leadership of Ohanaézè Ndígbo towards our shared development, we are also confident that the new leadership will be a bastion for the unity and tolerance all Nigerians should imbue for the peace and progress of the nation.”
The party also wished the Obiozor-led Ohanaézè Ndígbo Executive a successful tenure.
