George Obiozor: Peter Obi Visits Ohanaeze Ndigbo Secretariat, Signs Condolence Register


The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, has visited the National Secretariat of the Pan Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, in Enugu on Friday.

The former Governor of Anambra State, who arrived at the Ohaneze National Secretariat alongside some of his aides, signed the condolence register opened for the late President-General of organisation , Prof. George Obiozor.

Obi, after signing the condolence register, said he had to travel down to Enugu and made sure that he was the first to sign the condolence due to the deep respect he has for Obiozor and other Igbo leaders.

He described Obiozor as a rare great and respected leader that had served humanity and the country in various capacities.

The LP flagbearer said Nigeria, the Igbo people and humanity have lost a rare gem and personality, adding that the former Ambassador would surely be missed.

Obi said: “Due to the importance, value and respect I have for our leaders, especially our eminent leader and academic luminary, Prof. George Obiozor, I have to leave my home in Lagos to be here this morning.

No Nigerian is against my candidacy but what we have is different opinions, which is highly allowed in a democratic dispensation.

“I am very sad that we lost Obiozor. Our country, Nigeria; the Igbo people and humanity have lost a rare gem and personality.

“However, we cannot question God for His decision. I pray that God Almighty that called him home, will grant him eternal rest.

“I pray that God Almighty will grant all of us the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.”
