Bianca: Ojukwu, Onoh’s family in war of words

The paternal family of Bianca, widow of late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, has hit back at the children of the Eze Ndigbo for their open attack on their father’s wife, for aspiring to represent Anambra South senatorial district in 2019.

DAILY POST reported last week that Bianca joined the race for the Anambra South senatorial district on the platform of APGA.

However, Ike Ojukwu, who is one of the directors of Ojukwu Transport Company Limited, OTL, has said it was wrong to allow a woman from Ngwo in EnuguState to represent Anambra South Senatorial District.

However, Ms. Ojukwu’s brother, Dr. Umunnakwe Onoh, who spoke on behalf of Chief C. C. Onoh’s family, from his base in London, the United Kingdom, said Ojukwu’s children, particularly Debe, were ignorant of Nigerian laws on matrimony.

The Onoh family said even though they did not enter into matrimonial contract with Ojukwu’s children but their father, it was necessary to put the records straight.

“I, Umunnakwe handed over Bianca to their late father, Ikemba. I flew in from London, under 24 hours, just to hand her over to Ikemba because my father was not disposed and insisted I did that. Even the family’s wedding gift, I was the one who gave it,” he said.

Umunnakwe said Emeka Ojukwu jnr was not in a position to talk on the matter because he belongs to the All Progressives Congress (APC) and not the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).

“It is either Nnewi people, the Anambra South senatorial district or her political party, APGA that would have to decide who will represent them but I can assure our in-law’s children that we will meet at Bianca’s swearing-in ceremony,” he added.

He challenged Emeka Ojukwu jnr to field a better candidate than Bianca, if he has one, in his political party, the APC, instead of dancing naked in the market place because of his sister’s aspiration.

“What their father, Ikemba, represented was beyond APGA but for Ndigbo because his was an ideology. For Debe to say that their father’s wife is not Nnewi, is a shameful exhibition of his ignorance of the law as a lawyer he claims. He is also not in touch with the reality of Nigeria’s constitution,” he said.
