The leadership of the Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, have urged the All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, wards delegates from Anambra South Senatorial zone against voting the widow of Igbo hero, Bianca Ojukwu, in the coming APGA primary elections.
In a statement signed by its leader, Uchenna Madu, MASSOB said it was an act of disrespect for Bianca, wife of Odumegwu Ojukwu, to engage in partisan politics.
MASSOB claimed that Bianca’s presence as a senator in the red chamber will directly attract vicious insults, political attack and mesmerization from Hausa Fulani senators who have no regard for Mr Ojukwu.
MASSOB’s statement continues, “For the sake of high respect and regards Ndigbo have for Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu (Eze Igbo Gburugburu), his widow, Iyom Bianca should not engage in partisan politics.
“Bianca’s presence as a senator in the red chamber will directly attract vicious insults, political attack and mesmerization from Hausa Fulani senators who have no regard for Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu. They will insult her like Tinubu’s wife in the floor of the
“By virtue of being the wife of Eze Igbo Gburugburu, Iyom Bianca Ojukwu is like the Queen mother of Igbo land whose integrity, royalty and respect should not be undermined or mesmerized by her selfish political ambitions.
“We in MASSOB love and are loyal to the wife of Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu (Eze Igbo Gburugburu).
“She is a representative of Ndigbo in every affair of our life. She can’t aspire to represent political interest of a section of Anambra state.
“MASSOB advised the ward delegates of Anambra South senatorial zone about the importance of upholding the true respect and loyalty of Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu.
“Every support and vote to Ojukwu’s widow for partisan politics is a direct disrespect and disregard to Eze Igbo Gburugburu.
“We also advise the governors of south-east to rally all the necessary support to Ojukwu’s widow for up keeping of her children and herself, such will avoid her from feeling abandoned by Ndigbo.
“Political representation of Ndigbo is not about compensation, personal likeness or favour.
“Iyom Bianca Ojukwu can never be compensated with Igbo presentation in Abuja because of Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu.
“Bianca Ojukwu is not Eze Igbo Gburugburu whose eloquent, radical and selfless Igbo interest has no boundary.
“You can’t equate Bianca with Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu. Igbo political representations are for Igbo men or women with eloquent, radical, fearless and Igbotic tendencies.
“The current state of Ndigbo in Nigeria which has gradually & systematically degraded and substituted Ndigbo to second-class citizens and inferior tribe needs a vibrant, radical, people oriented and Igbo fighters to revive and reestablished our true political nature.
“Ndigbo does not need to add more sleeping, fearful, cowardice and judastic politicians as National Legislative representatives in Abuja from 2019.
“We need practical and proactive experienced men or women in major sectors of Igbo lives which includes economy, agriculture, technology, trade and Youths/Human Development to represent our people in Nigeria governance.
“MASSOB advise Ojukwu’s widow to concentrate on Ojukwu’s family value. Bianca should stay away from politics in other to uphold Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu’s name and respect.
“Venturing into politics will make her partisan which will also divide the people’s respect and regard for Eze Igbo Gburugburu.
“Those who advises or pushing Iyom Bianca Ojukwu to aspire political elective post are enemies of Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu and Igbo land.
“Adding Bianca Ojukwu to the 15 Igbo senators in Abuja will never bring any positive or progressive change to Ndigbo.
“Bola Tinubu’s wife who is a senator representing Lagos state has never brought any progressive change to Lagos state and Yoruba nation in general rather her association with politicians in the red chamber of National Assembly have ridiculed and mesmerized Bola Tinubu’s eloquent respect and followership in Yoruba land.
“Anambra state government and APGA leadership should caution Dim Chukwuemeka Ojukwu’s widow to respect and revere the name and person of Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu (Eze Igbo Gburugburu) and stop her political romance with enemies of Ndigbo.”
