“I congratulate Chief Nnia Nwodo and his team on their emergence. I have confidence in their ability to further reposition the apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation and relaunch Ndigbo to a higher reckoning in the country, while also working with other parts of the nation for the overall development of Nigeria.
“I expect them to work with the Igbo civil society, the diaspora community, town unions, governments, political elites, and other parts of the country to bring out the best of the famed Igbo resourcefulness, intellect, and collectivism for the social, economic, and political transformation of Igbo Land and Nigeria,” he said.
Ekweremadu, who commended Ohanaeze for a rancour-free election, also tasked the new officers on an all-inclusive administration that accommodates and utilises the capacities of those, who contested against them.
He equally congratulated the newly elected executive of the Enugu State chapter of Ohanaeze Ndigbo led by Hon. Alex Chiedozie Ogbonnia.
He described Ogbonnia as a capable hand and social mobiliser, urging him to further boost the presence, scope, and efforts of Ohanaeze in Enugu State.
