Leader of the Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), Comrade Uchenna Madu, has giveb reasons why Mrs. Bianca Ojukwu, widow of the late Ikemba Nnewi, Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, failed in her bid to get the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) senatorial ticket.
He said that Bianca disobeyed her husband’s directive not contest elective positions, hence she would not sail through.
Bianca lost the APGA Anambra South Senatorial ticket during the party primaries Nicholas Ukachukwu.
In a statement he issued in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State on Monday, MASSOB National Director of Information for the Madu-led MASSOB, Comrade Edeson Samuel, berated Chief Ralp Uwazuruike the leader of Biafra Independent Movement (BIM) for insisting that Bianca should be given the APGA ticket.
MASSOB noted that Bianca’s quest for political office led her into going for elective position in total disregard to the directive of her husband, the greatest Biafra leader.
The group told Uwazurike that his insistence that the senatorial ticket be given to Bianca was a slap on her husband.
The statement reads: “The attention of the Movement for the Actualisation of A Sovereign State Of Biafra (MASSOB) under the leadership of Comrade Uchenna Madu has been drawn to statements by Chief Ralph Uwazurike, the leader of Biafra Independent Movement (BIM) where he is insisting that Mrs. Bianca Ojukwu should be given the senatorial ticket for Anambra South Senatorial District on the platform of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).
“Much as we would not want to join issues with Uwazurike on the statement, in view of his inglorious past it has become imperative that certain pictures are made known for the purposes of clarity and full disclosure.
“That Bianca Ojukwu disobeyed the instructions of her husband, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu (Eze Igbo Gburugburu) that she should not contest for any election whatsoever.
“Bianca’s unbridled quest for political office led her into going for elective position in total disregard to the directive of her husband, the greatest Biafra leader.
“At the end, she lost the ticket which is indeed a vindication on the part of late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu (Ezeigbo Gburu Gburu) and our ancestors.”
