No, the electronegativity of an element is actually a calculated value consisting of both the ionization energy and the electron affinity. I believe what you are speaking of is the Oxidation state.
Group number does not directly correlate to electronegativity, electronegativity is calculated using other methods however a general trend can be seen where atoms become more electronegative as you travel across a period and become less electronegative as you travel down a group
