A conntestant for the post of President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo in the coming January election from IMO state, Professor George Obiozor was Sunday carried out unconscious from the venue of the Imeobi meeting of the organization after he reportedly slumped. 

Midway into an expanded meeting of the Imeobi, which is the highest organ of Ohanaeze, Obiozor was said to be exhibiting unusual behavior.

He was escorted out of the hall where the meeting was taking place at the Nike Lake Resort, Enugu.

It was gathered that as he was being escorted out, he suddenly slumped and passed out. He was driven away unconscious to an unknown destination in an unmarked SUV. 

It was later learnt that Obiozor, a former Nigerian Ambassador to United States, was taken to a private hospital where efforts were being made to revive him by press time Sunday night. 

Obiozor’s dilemma happened in presence of Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo state, Ministers Chris Ngige and Ogbonnaya Onu, former Senate president, Anyim Pius Anyim, Senator Osita Izunaso, Chief Chekwas Okorie and the deputy governor of Ebonyi state as well as others.

The Imeobi meeting, held for the second time within one month was in regards to the forthcoming elections of the apex Igbo sociocultural organization.

During the meeting which was said to be the most peaceful since the inception of the organization, objections were raised to the constitution of the 40-member election committee set up by the Nnia Nwodo-led administration. 

Minister of Labour, Chris Ngige opposed the chairmanship of the election committee which is occupied by Ben Obi from Anambra state.

That was, however, resolved as Obi voluntary stepped down for peace to reign paving the way for a former  President General of the organization, Chief Gary Enwo Igariwey from Ebonyi state who was unanimously adopted.

A clergy, Bishop Gordy Okafor was nominated as deputy chairman and was also unanimously adopted.

It was also resolved that the January election will take place in Owerri, Imo state.

The consensus was that henceforth elections shall be held in the state whose turn it is to produce the president general.

One of the frontline contestants for the position of President General of the body is Dr Joe Nwaorgu, a former Secretary General of the organisation, who is highly  favored by Ohanaeze chieftains and elders as the right person to succeed the outgoing President General.
