OWERRI – An elder statesman, Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, has replaced the late Prof. George Obiozor as Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide President-General.

Iwuanyanwu was presented to Imo Governor Hope Uzodimma by a delegation of the Imo Elders Council led by the Chairman, HRM Eze (Dr.) Cletus Ilomuanya, at the New Executive Council Chambers Government House, Owerri on Wednesday.

Ilomuanya informed the governor the decision to adopt Iwuanyanwu was taken at the Imo State Council of Elders at its first quarterly meeting on April, 13, 2023 in Owerri.

He described Iwuanyanwu as a dynamic, versatile, purpose driven and broad-minded personality of impeccable pedigree and appealed to the Governor to grant his approval to his adoption by the Council.

He expressed happiness in accepting the position and said it was also a surprise that Igbos can unanimously accept that one person leads them without struggles, noting that he believes that God will lead him through.

Iwuanyanwu appreciated the Governor for his numerous achievements, particularly in the areas of road infrastructure, health and education in the State.

He said his plans for Ohanaeze Ndigbo will include making the body financially self-sufficient, improving the agricultural sector in Igboland, setting up a Council of academics in the area of education and generally, ensuring that Igboland becomes an industrial hub.  (The Nation)
