A former Nigerian ambassador to the United States, Israel and Cyprus, Prof. George Obiozor, has emerged the President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo.
Obiozor emerged in an election held at Dan Anyim Stadium in Owerri, the Imo State capital.
This was even as other candidates for the position boycotted the election.
Chief Jackson Omenazu, who spoke with newsmen at the venue of the election, declared the process that brought Obiozor to power as fraudulent.
Omenazu, who is the Board of Trustee Member representing Rivers State at Ohanaeze Ndigbo, said the outgoing president general was misleading the Igbo nation.
Chief Gerry Igariwe, who declared Obiozor the winner, said he (Obiozor) got 304 votes to beat other candidates.
Though our correspondents observed that other candidates boycotted the election, Igariwe said the process was smooth and transparent.
Speaking to our correspondent, one of the candidates for Ohanaeze Ndigbo President-General position who boycotted the election, Prof Chidi Osuagwu, described the electoral process as fraudulent.
The former professor of Biochemistry from the Federal University of Technology, Owerri, said the outgoing president general of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Nnia Nwodo, destroyed the socio-cultural organisation.
Osuagwu explained that he pulled out of the electoral contest because the stakeholders of Ohanaeze Ndigbo said the election should be suspended.
