A former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Prof. Kingsley Moghalu, on Monday urged the new President-General of Ohaneze Ndigbo, Prof. George Obiozor, to foster effective partnerships with other ethnic nationalities.
Moghalu, the Convener of To Build A Nation (TBAN), made the call in a congratulatory message to Obiozor.
A copy of the message was made available to our reporter in Awka.
Moghalu said that such partnerships would help to build a nation anchored on equity, equality and justice.
“I congratulate Prof. Obiozor on his election as President-General of Ohaneze Ndigbo.
“Obiozor is eminently prepared for this challenging leadership role by virtue of his distinguished track record as a scholar and public servant of our country.
“As Nigeria’s Ambassador to the United States, Israel and Cyprus at different times, as a former Director-General of the Nigerian Institute for International Affairs and as a professor of international relations, Obiozor possesses the requisite leadership experience.
“He also possesses the global exposures and intellectual pedigree for the socio-cultural leadership of Ndigbo at this critical period.
“I am confident that his leadership of Ohaneze will foster emphasis on strategic thinking, actions and positive value systems to govern the Igbo society,” Moghalu said.
