Ex-Vice President, Atiku Abubakar has come out to beg the newly elected President-General, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Prof. George Obiozor to improve the cooperation between the group and other ethno-social groups in Nigeria.

He recently revealed this via a statement personally signed by him today, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, he can only congratulate the new president, Obiozor and beg him to make sure that the unity of Nigeria is stronger.

He added that Obiozor now has an important role to play to ensure peace reigns across the country, and he trusts him to make it happen because he is an intelligent man.

His words, “I have known Obiozor since his days as Director-General of Nigeria Institute of International Affairs, and a one-time Ambassador of Nigeria to the United States of America, Israel and Cyprus.”

“I can attest to his brilliance, wisdom and experience, qualities that I am confident will come to bear as he pilots the affairs of Ohanaeze Ndigbo.

“I also take note of the “big shoes” left behind by Obiozor’s predecessor, Chief Nnia Nwodo, who elevated Ohanaeze Ndigbo to enviable heights such that he was appointed as the Coordinator of all the notable socio-cultural groups in the country.

“I know that Obiozor will tap into his experience and the networks he had built to further push the group to higher heights.”
