Nollywood actor and politician, Yul Edochie has said that the widow of late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu’s, Bianca Ojukwu deserved an automatic ticket at her party and it’s an abomination that she lost at the party’s primary election.
According to him, it is an insult to the entire Igbo race and to Ojukwu who formed APGA.
“It’s an insult to the entire Igbo race & to the Great Ojukwu who fought for the wellbeing of Ndi Igbo, same man who formed APGA, for his wife to be subjected to primaries & even announce that she lost.
Automatic ticket should be given to her.
Uphold honour!” he tweeted.
Recall that Bianca Ojukwu lost the APGA senatorial ticket to Chief Nicolas Ukachukwu
According to the the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) she lost in the senatorial primary election of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) due to disobedience.
Comrade Edeson Samuel, National Director of Information, MASSOB, in a statement on Friday, said she failed because she disobeyed her late husband.
“Though she is loved, honoured and acknowledged by Ndigbo as the wife of Eze Igbo Gburugburu, still MASSOB can never allow Iyom Bianca Ojukwu to be rubbished or mesmerized by Hausa Fulani people in the red chamber of National Assembly.
“MASSOB warned that the leadership of APGA should not be blamed or castigated because of the failure of Iyom Bianca Ojukwu. She failed because she disobeyed her husband and our ancestors who have seen the mesmerization she will encounter in the red chamber of the National Assembly. Her failure is a divine act.
“MASSOB under Comrade Uchenna Madu will never relent or derail in defence of the integrity, honour and respect of Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu (Eze Igbo Gburugburu).
“We advice the Igbo governors the importance of establishing a human development centre in honour and memorial of Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, a centre that will alleviate the sufferings and subjections of marginalized widows in Igbo land.”
