President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Prof George Obiozor, has said he was ready to tackle head-on the challenge likely to confront him in the course of delivering on the expectations of Ndigbo.
Obiozor, who stated this Wednesday at his maiden press briefing since assumption of office in Enugu, said the major challenge would be establish cordial relationships between the Igbo race and other ethnic nationalities.
He expressed gratitude to people for entrusting him and his team with the responsibility, saying their preoccupation will be to ensure Igbo’s unite in order to bring development to Igbo land first and the entire nation.
The Ohanaeze chieftain said the Igbo know when to unite with other ethnic nationalities, and insisted that the time to unite is now.
He said to actualise this, Ndigbo would need a leadership that would make things happen including ensuring that peace exists between Ndigbo and other Nigerians.
“The Igbo must tread carefully. In the present trial moment, we have to be careful. We must have a sense of purpose.
“The Igbo are not out to dominate or humiliate anybody. What Igbo seek is where justice and fair play reigns, “he said.
Obiozor said Ndigbo must offer Nigerians what they cannot resist when making demands on the wider Nigeria.
