Dr. Adolphus Wabara, a former Senate president and the interim chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party’s Board of Trustees, called the passing of Ambassador George Obiozor, President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, “a major loss for the Igbo country.”
This is in accordance with Senator Mao Ohuabunwa, a former leader of the ECOWAS Parliament, who described the late diplomat’s passing as the departure of a titan.
A number of significant Igbo businessmen and public figures also expressed sorrow and pain over Obiozor’s passing under the banner of the Umunna Lekki Association.
In a message of condolence, Wabara stated that Obiozor left the scene just when his knowledge, wisdom advice, and fatherly position were most required.
The former Senate President claimed that Ambassador Obiozor left enduring legacies and irreparable traces on the sands of time.
The former ambassador, he said, would be dearly missed, but he also emphasized that his famous accomplishments in life were sufficient solace.
Senator Wabara expressed sympathy for the passing of the erstwhile Ohanaeze leader with Obiozor’s immediate family, the residents and government of Imo State, and the entire Igbo people.
The previous Senate President prayed to God to give the deceased’s family the strength to cope with their loss and to grant his or her soul eternal rest in heaven.
Obiozor, according to Ohuabunwa, left behind enduring legacy that future generations will always remember him for.
Senator Ohuabunwa described the late Obiozor as a close friend and a patriotic Igbo while speaking with Newsmen in Umuahia.
He reflected on his interactions with him and said that finding a substitute would be difficult.
” I flew with him in the aircraft few weeks ago and we discussed issues regarding Igbo interest. He had a very big programme for Ndigbo.
” He was an enigma and big asset to Ndigbo. We will miss him dearly”, Senator Ohuabunwa lamented.
According to a statement from the Umunna Lekki Association’s president, Ikem Ume-Ezeoke, Obiozor was the definition of a diligent worker, a deserving ambassador, and a defender of Igbo collective interests who gave it his all while serving as President-General of Ohaneze.
Given his dedication to the defense and advancement of the Igbo cause, it was stated that the passing of such a great man at this time is a major loss to Ndigbo.
Obiozor’s death, according to Umunna Lekki, cost Nigeria a great deal because of his commitment to maintaining national unity.
Additionally, he served as Nigeria’s High Commissioner to Cyprus, Ambassador to Israel, and later, the United States.
