Buhari Mourns Professor George Obiozor, Ohanaeze Ndigbo President General, Says He Is “Deeply Saddened”

President Muhammadu Buhari is deeply saddened by the passing of Professor George Obiozor, the President General of Ohaneze Ndigbo, worldwide.

He extends heartfelt condolences to Obiozor’s family, the government and people of Imo State as well as Ndigbo, at home and in the Diaspora.

Describing his demise as an immeasurable loss to the country, the President notes that the former Ambassador of Nigeria to the United States, High Commissioner to the Republic of Cyprus, Ambassador to the State of Israel and former Director-General, Nigerian Institute of International Affairs (NIIA) exemplified leadership skills and values as a thoroughbred diplomat.

The President believes that the contributions of the unique leader and strong proponent of peace and a stable polity, who also held other strategic public positions,  will never be forgotten.

President Buhari trusts that all who mourn the demise of the statesman, who commanded great respect among his peers in the academia and foreign policy arena, will honour his memory by actively embracing his beliefs and ideas  geared towards uniting Nigeria beyond geo-political considerations.

The President has fond memories of meeting Prof. Obiozor on several occasions, and values his endearing sense of patriotism.  

He joins the Igbo nation in mourning the irreparable loss of this great son of Nigeria, even as he prays for the peaceful repose of the soul of the deceased.
