Before the election, Professor Obiozor had emerged as a consensus candidate at Imeobi meeting convened by the Nwodo-led executive of Ohaneze Ndigbo, but his emergence was described as unconstitutional by some contestants.

Obiozor, a Professor, was backed by several South East groups, including the South East Revival Group (SERG).

The 78-year-old professor was Nigeria’s ambassador to the united states from 2004 to 2008.

He was also a former Director-General of the Nigerian Institute of International Affairs, Former High Commissioner to Cyprus, and was Nigeria’s ambassador to Israel from 1999 to 2003.
