“This great Igbo leader and Nigeria’s elder statesman was a distinguished academic and diplomat who served his people and entire country with honour, dedication and distinction.

“Ambassador Obiozor’s death at this time has again robbed our dear country of one of its finest public servants and committed leaders.

“As the leader of Ohaneze, he championed the course of national unity and economic development while seeking a more equitable and even-handed federation where all the constituent units and ethnic groups can live together in peace and harmony.

“The ideals of a better and more inclusive country where justice and equity would prevail, for which Ambassador Obiozor lived will forever be cherished,’’ he said.

The former governor of Lagos State extended his condolences to the family, government and people of Imo; to Ndigbo and to Nigerians adding that the deceased served the country with pride and distinction

Tinubu prayed God to comfort Obiozor’s loved ones and all those he left behind and also to grant his soul eternal rest.
