Northern Elders Forum has said it is saddened by the demise of President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Ambassador George Obiozor, describing him as a great Nigerian whose life captured the truism that most of us can serve the nation and our cultural identities with distinction and honour.
The Director of Publicity and Advocacy of the Forum, Dr Hakeem Baba-Ahmed in a statement said Ambassador Obiozor had given Nigeria his best, and had died on his feet in the search for solutions to its multiple contemporary challenges.
“It is even sadder that Ambassador Obiozor died when he was leading his organization towards a historic rapprochement with the rest of Nigeria.
“It will be difficult to fill the shoes left be Ambassador Obiozor, but Northern Elders Forum prays that the organization will find a leader who will continue with his inspirational leadership”, Dr. Baba-Ahmed said.
The Forum extended its condolences to the George Obiozor family, Ohanaeze Ngigbo, and Nigerians over the “great loss.”
