President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated Chief John Nwodo on his election as the President-General of Ohaneze Ndigbo, the pan-Igbo socio-cultural organisation.

In a statement issued by his Senior Special on Media and Publicity, Mr. Garba Shehu, the President said Chief Nwodo was eminently qualified for the job given his long years of distinguished service to the nation, which includes, Minister of Civil Aviation in the Second Republic under President Shehu Shagari and Minister of  Information and Culture during the administration of General Abdulsalami Abubakar.

As Chief Nwodo prepares to settle down with his team to implement his vision for Ohaneze Ndigbo, the President appealed to Ndi Igbo and the wider community of Nigerians to support the new leadership to fulfil its mandate in these challenging times.

The President said he looks forward to working with the new leadership, and assured the Ohaneze Ndigbo that the present administration would continue to be a partner-in-progress in implementing suggestions, measures and programmes to advance the unity, development and prosperity of Nigeria.

He also wished the Chief Nwodo-led Ohaneze Ndigbo a peaceful and prosperous tenure.
