By Adadainfo

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Thursday, thanked the Imo Council of Elders for unanimously endorsing Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu as replacement for the late Prof George Obiozor as the president general of Ohanaeze.

Prof Obiozor, former Nigerian diplomat, died in 2022 after an illness. Our correspondent reports that the position of Ohanaeze’s PG is zoned to Imo State.

Recall that a delegation of the Imo Elders Council, led by the chairman, HRM Eze Cletus Ilomuanya, presented
Iwuanyanwu to Imo State Governor Hope Uzodinma on Wednesday at the Government House, Owerri.

HRM Ilomuanya told Uzodinma that the decision to adopt Iwuanyanwu was arrived at by the Imo State Council of Elders at its meeting in April in Owerri.

In a reaction, the national publicity secretary of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Dr Alex Ogbonnia, says various reactions from the members of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of Ohanaeze and from all the organs of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide indicate wild jubilations with the news that Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, who is also the chairman, Ohanaeze’s Council of Elders, has been selected as a replacement to Ambassador George Obiozor who died in 2022.

In his words, “In line with a doctrine of necessity, the NEC had at the demise of Professor George Obiozor directed the people of Imo State to find a credible replacement of Obiozor for the post of president general of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide.”

He describe Chief Iwuanyanwu as ‘one of the finest amongst the Igbo; a philanthropist par excellence, massive employer of labour, robust creative thinker, brave soldier, accomplished engineer, astute business mogul, industrialist and sagacious politician’.

Iwuanyanwu had served as chairman of Ohanaeze’s State Creation Committee, Planning and Strategy Committee, Political Committee, and Constitution Drafting Committee.

Ohanaeze thanked the Imo State Council of Elders for adopting Iwuanyanwu, urging members of Imeobi Ohanaeze Ndigbo ‘to endorse the decision of the Imo State Council of Elders in good faith’.
