Gov. Umahi Mourns Obiozo's Death

Governor David Umahi has condoled with the Obiozor family, the people of Imo State, the Igbo nation and Nigeria in general over the death of the President - General of Ohaneze Ndi - Igbo, Professor George Obiozor.

He said Obiozor's death hit him with a rude shock and  surprise, describing it as a great national loss.

Umahi stressed that the demise of the elder statesman has created a huge vacuum difficult to fill in the affairs of the Southeast in particular, and Nigeria nation as a whole. 

"I received news of the death of the President General of Ohaneze Ndigbo, Professor George Obiozor with rude shock and a feeling of great loss.

"I wouldn't have believed the news  had it not been confirmed  by my dear brother and Governor of Imo State, His Excellency, Hope Uzodimma.

"Obiozor's death has created a big vacuum, not only in Igbo nation but in the entire country. 

"He was a strong voice in the promotion of peace in the country through his consistent advocacy for equity, justice and fairness across all segments. He was a strong voice in international politics, and served Nigeria meritoriously as an ambassador and Director General of the Institute of International Affairs.

"It is sad that he has to leave when we desired his fatherly counsel most.

The Governor urged the family, the entire Igbo nation and Nigerians in general to take solace in God who has the prerogative to determine the fate of all men.
