The leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has commended former President Olusegun Obasanjo for his insistence for the South-East to produce the next president of the country in 2023.  

Ohanaeze in a statement by its National publicity Secretary, Chief Alex Ogbonnia while felicitating with Obasanjo on his 85th birthday, noted that his administration gave opportunities to some prominent Igbo sons and daughters today.  

It was such a competence driven administration that harvested the robust intellect of notable Igbo sons and daughters, such as Professor George Obiozor, Professor Dora Akunyili, Dr Mrs. Ngozi Okonjo Iweala, Dr. Mrs Oby Ezekwesili, Professor Osita Ogbu, Frank Nweke Jr, Professor Charles Soludo, Arc.

“The Ohanaeze Ndigbo expresses immense gratitude to Obasanjo for standing on the path of justice, equity and fair play in favour of an Igbo for the president of Nigeria come 2023. 

Meanwhile, the Former President of Nigeria, declared his willingness to be inducted as an Honourary Member of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide. 

Obasanjo proclamation which was one of the highlights of his 85th birthday ceremonies was made when a delegation of Ohanaeze Ndigbo led by the Secretary General, Okey Emuchay, visited him at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, Abeokuta, Ogun State on Friday, March 4, 2022. 

Other members of the delegation included the former President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Prince Gary Igariwey, National Publicity Secretary, Alex Ogbonnia; Ohanaeze Chieftain, Nze Ozichukwu Chukwu; Bishop Dr. Sunday N. Onuoha, Founder and President of Vision for Africa and Chief Emeka Udodeme, President, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Anambra State Chapter, Ambrose Obioha, Admin Manager, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Secretariat and Prince Okey Kanu, a Lagos based business consultant. 

Presenting an Ohanaeze birthday cake to the octogenarian, Emuchay expressed that the Igbo remember Chief Obasanjo with deep emotional attachment and were there to demonstrate profound love, gratitude and solidarity with him at 85. 

The Ohanaeze scribe recapitulated the sterling and enviable qualities of Obasanjo that stood him out among his peers.
