In a statement issued yesterday to journalists, Moghalu also charged Obiozor, who was former Nigerian Ambassador to the United States of America, Cyprus and Israel, to as well effectively partner with other ethnic nationalities to build a nation anchored on equality, justice and equity.
In a message to congratulate the new Ohanaeze boss, Moghalu said “I congratulate Professor George Obiozor on his election as President-General of Ohaneze Ndigbo. Dr. Obiozor is eminently prepared for this challenging leadership role by virtue of his distinguished track record as a scholar and public servant of our country.
“As Nigeria’s Ambassador to the United States, Israel and Cyprus at different times, as a former Director-General of the Nigerian Institute for International Affairs (NIIA) and as a professor of international relations, Obiozor possesses the requisite leadership experience, global exposures and intellectual pedigree for the socio-cultural leadership of Ndigbo at this critical period in Nigeria’s quest for nationhood.
“I am confident his leadership of Ohaneze will foster emphasis on strategic thinking and action , positive value systems to govern Igbo society, as well as effective partnerships with other ethnic nationalities to build a nation anchored on equality, justice and equity.”
