APC Ready To Partner With Ohanaeze Ndigbo Over ‘Shared Development’ – National Secretary

The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Sunday, felicitated with former Nigerian Ambassador to the United States of America, Prof. George Obiozor on his election as the new President-General of the apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo.

The APC in a statement issued by its National Secretary, Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), Sen. John J. Akpan Udoedehe, said the party is ready to partner and work with the new leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo towards “our shared development.”

According to Udoedehe, the party is also confident that the new leadership will be a bastion for the unity and tolerance all Nigerians should imbue for the peace and progress of the nation.

He said going by Obiozor’s distinguished service to the nation, his experience and suitability for the strategic position of president-general of Ohanaeze Ndigbo is not in doubt.

He therefore called on Ndigbo to support Obiozor to fulfil the mandate of the organisation.

He also extended the party’s congratulations to the outgoing Chief John Nwodo executive for its “mature and patriotic leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo.”

He said, “The APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) under the leadership of Governor Mai Mala Buni is determined to consolidate on the ongoing efforts to further mainstream the South East geo-political zone in the workings of the governing APC and place the zone in its deserved political standing in the country.

“While the APC is ready to partner and work with the new leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo towards our shared development, we are also confident that the new leadership will be a bastion for the unity and tolerance all Nigerians should imbue for the peace and progress of the nation.

“The APC wishes the Obiozor-led Ohanaeze Ndigbo a successful tenure.”
